The rumors that LeBron has retired comes just hours after news that the Los Angeles Lakers will go hard after Jazz head coach Quin Snyder, who has been rumored as a candidate to fill their head coaching vacancy.

The Lakers’ interest in Snyder as a successor to Frank Vogel is serious, sources say. There is nonetheless ongoing skepticism in coaching circles that Snyder would want to move from Utah — where he has enjoyed a considerable amount of control and influence — to take over the LeBron James-led Lakers in their current state after the never-ending chaos that engulfed [Frank] Vogel’s last two seasons.
Meanwhile, Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka recently said during his exit interview he will take his time in selecting a new coach, but he also gave a possible timeline for settling on one.

I think it’s going to be a very methodical process, and I think the principles here are not to pick an end date and say, ‘Hey, we have to have someone by this date.’ I think we want to find the right person. I think that’s the most important thing. I think all things considered, it would be great to have someone in place by the draft.
