Golden State Warriors assistant coach Luke Walton said it was a difficult decision to take over as head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers but one he was prepared to make.
“It was a tough decision, but I didn’t have to sleep on it because I already kind of thought it out,” said Walton, who addressed the media for the first time since news of the hire broke Friday. “Obviously, I love that the past two years, the players here are incredible, not just talent-wise, but the people they are. I love the coaching staff I work with here.”
