In the first move of what’s sure to be a busy offseason for the Los Angeles Lakers, coach Mike D’Antoni informed Bernie Bickerstaff and Chuck Person on Monday that they will not be retained as assistant coaches for next season, according to multiple sources.
“Brown is a guy who loved big staffs, Mike D’Antoni is not,” said a source with knowledge of the situation as the reasoning behind the dismissals.
The Lakers’ remaining assistant coaching staff consists of D’Antoni’s older brother, Dan D’Antoni, who will be brought back next season, as well as Steve Clifford, Darvin Ham and player development coach Phil Handy who are still being evaluated.
