Rex Chapman Says UK’s John Calipari Will Be Lakers Next Head Coach


The worst season in the Los Angeles Lakers history is almost in the books. As the Lakers limp towards the finish – losing another player, Kent Bazemore, to season ending injury, rumors are spinning about who will be the coach next season. Monday night before the National Championship game, former Kentucky Wildcat and NBA player, Rex Chapman dropped a rumor on Twitter regarding who he says the next Lakers head coach will be. UK’s head coach, John Calipari.



The Lakers of course have come out and denied it. Coach Calipari denied it as well following UK’s defeat to UConn. Chapman didn’t reveal his source, but he is an alum and a former NBA exec. Time will tell soon enough.
