EX-SIXER REDICK BACK IN HUNT FOR LAKERS JOB— HURLEY SAYS NOPE!

By Tommy Matthews

ESPN is reporting that Dan Hurley has turned down the Los Angeles Lakers’ six-year, $70 million offer and will return to try to three-peat at UConn.

Before opening talks with the Lakers, Hurley already had an offer from UConn to become one of the highest-paid NCAA coaches, and those talks will continue, sources told Wojnarowski.

Hurley signed a six-year, $32.1 million deal with UConn after the 2022-23 season.

After a dogged pursuit of Hurley over past weeks, the Lakers will regroup and resume bringing in candidates for interviews with hope of hiring a coach by the NBA draft later this month, sources told Wojnarowski.

New Orleans Pelicans assistant James Borrego is expected to remain part of the group of Los Angeles’ candidates, and the Lakers could do their first formal interview with JJ Redick, who also has been linked to the job.
