Lakers controlling owner Jeanie Buss emphatically said Luke Walton will be "the Lakers coach, period." When asked by ESPN's Cassidy Hubbarth on "Buckets" if Walton will remain the coach through the regular season, free agency and the summer, Buss replied, "Absolutely. Luke Walton is the Lakers coach, period. There's no worrying about it, there's no speculation. He's done a terrific job. He is somebody that the entire front office, the organization is behind."
