Milwaukee Bucks Assistant Coach Darvin Ham Named New Head Coach of Los Angeles Lakers

Milwaukee Bucks assistant coach Darvin Ham is heading to the City of Angels as the new head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers.

According to ESPN Senior NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the Lakers will be Ham's first stint as a head coach and will sign a four-year contract. “Ham made a strong impression on Lakers in several areas, including his championship pedigree, his commanding presence, history of coaching stars and toughness.

He replaces Frank Vogel who served as the Lakers' head coach from 2019 up until April 2022. Ham played a total of eight NBA season from 1996 to 2005 with the Denver Nuggets, Indiana Pacers, Washington Wizards, Bucks, Atlanta Hawks and Detroit Pistons, the latter of whom he won an NBA Championship with in 2004. He also had short stints with the NBA G League and Philippine Basketball Association before being an assistant coach for the G League's New Mexico/Albuquerque Thunderbirds from 2008 to 2011, the Lakers from 2011 to 2013, the Hawks from 2013 to 2018 and then the Bucks.
