LA Lakers suffered a devastating season. They had high hopes of winning the championship this season. However, the team failed to qualify for the playoffs. One casualty of the poor season is head coach Frank Vogel. A sportsbook picks Mark Jackson as the likely replacement for him.
The Lakers’ front office fired Vogel. However, the action left a bad taste in many pay per head sportsbook providers’ mouths. They said it could have long-term ramifications. Now that Vogel is out, sports fans wonder who will be the next head coach.
A bookie software expert named Mark Jackson is the new favorite to take over Vogel’s position. The previous Golden State Warriors coach is a +125 favorite. David Fizdale follows him at +400, Nick Nurse at +600, Doc Rivers at +600, and Mike Brown at +800.
Sportsbook Picks Mark Jackson as Next Lakers Coach
Jackson is a fascinating case. He was ostensibly the critical part of turning the Warriors’ establishment around. However, he didn’t resonate with players and staff. He has been renounced from that point onward for a bunch of reasons. As a result, he hasn’t served as a coach since then.
Fizdale is likewise a fascinating decision. His relationship with Russell Westbrook was one of this Lakers season’s more diverting side plots. So, it would be intriguing to perceive how those dynamics play out should he become the next Lakers coach.
According to software sportsbook experts, Rivers has made his perspective on assuming control over the Lakers genuinely straightforward.
Brown and Nurse are longshots. The former used to be part of the Lakers organization. On the other hand, Nurse found a home with the Raptors.
The Lakers should settle on a choice for their next lead trainer soon. However, there’s still no clear choice at present.
