Sean Sweeney and Chris Quinn are reportedly Lakers coaching candidates

With Mike Budenholzer headed to the Phoenix Suns and Tyronn Lue likely not available this offseason, the Los Angeles Lakers need to cast a wide net when it comes to their head coaching search.

It looks as if they will do so. They have their top candidates, including former Brooklyn Nets coach Kenny Atkinson and former NBA sharpshooter JJ Redick. David Adelman and Micah Nori, who are assistants with the Denver Nuggets and Minnesota Timberwolves, respectively, are also candidates.

According to Jovan Buha of The Athletic, the Lakers have two more candidates who are currently assistants: Sean Sweeney and Chris Quinn (h/t Lakers Nation).

โ€œIโ€™ve also seen some other names floated out that I can confirm the Lakers have some interest in, with those being Micah Nori, David Adelman, Sean Sweeney and Chris Quinn.โ€

Sweeney is on Jason Kiddโ€™s staff with the Dallas Mavericks. Quinn is an assistant under Erik Spoelstra with the Miami Heat. While the Heat were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the Boston Celtics, Dallas took a 2-1 series lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday in their second-round series.

ESPNโ€™s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Lakersโ€™ coaching search will begin in earnest at the draft combine, during which they will start asking for permission to interview candidates who are assistants for other teams.
