Just days after firing Mike Brown as their head coach, the Los Angeles Lakers have found their man in former Phoenix and New York coach, Mike D’Antoni.On Friday, news broke the the Lakers were parting ways with Mike Brown after just a season and a couple games. Speculation immediately turned to who the Lakers would bring in next.

Some suggested Mike D’Antoni, and they were right. This move reunites D’Antoni with his former point guard Steve Nash. The two of them had a quite a run in Phoenix, and will hope to continue it in LA.

D’Antoni reportedly inked a three year deal worth $12 million. The Lakers will make an official announcement on Tuesday or Wednesday.
