Report: Lakers close to bringing in Kurt Rambis as assistant By Matt Moore | NBA writer July 17, 2013 10:40 am

ESPN reports that former Lakers player and coach Kurt Rambis is "close" to rejoining the Lakers as an assistant. Rambis played nine seasons with the Lakers in the 1980s and '90s and coached the team in 37 games in 1999, going 24-13. He later spent two seasons with the Timberwolves under David Kahn, foolishly trying to install the triangle offense with personnel horribly suited to it.

He was pretty much a disaster in Minnesota and was fired after the 2010-11 season. Since then, he has been an analyst for ESPN. He's still held in high regard by the Lakers' organization. ESPN reports his "institutional knowledge" of the team plays a part in their interest in Rambis. (Because, apparently, the Lakers are something that has "institutional knowledge" like they're MIT or something. Come on, it's one family and Kobe. Boom. There, you have the Lakers.)
