JJ Redick Will Formally Interview With Lakers, Considered Favorite To Be Next Coach

JJ Redick will meet with the Los Angeles Lakers this weekend, which will be his first formal interview for the open head coaching job.

Redick is expected to be the favorite to be hired.

Should the NBA Finals advance to a Game 5, that game won’t be played until Monday, giving Redick the weekend to meet with the Lakers.

Rob Pelinka and Redick have stayed connected throughout the process. Redick is likely to have an all-day session with Pelinka and Jeanie Buss. He’ll be given the opportunity to prove that he should lead the Lakers, with player development expected to be a key focus.

The Lakers previously offered their head coaching job to Dan Hurley, who ultimately decided to to remain at Connecticut.
