The L.A. Lakers announced they are also interested in Adelman to take the coaching job left by Phil Jackson’s departure. Brian Shaw, Jackson’s right hand is also pushing for that vacant.
Bird says interim coach Frank Vogel, who took over at midseason, is the front-runner. The 37-year-old took over when the Pacers fired Jim O’Brien, finished the regular season with a 20-18 record and led the team to the playoffs. Basketball scores.
