Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton watches the action against the Utah Jazz in the first half at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, UT, USA, Mar 27, 2019. The former Golden State assistant never led the Lakers to the playoffs, not even after the arrival of LeBron James last summer. Instead, Pelinka announced the move in a possible sign of his increased power with the Lakers after Johnson's departure. "We wish Luke and his family the best of luck moving forward".
