The Los Angeles Lakers' senior management has plans to travel East to meet with Philadelphia 76ers assistant Monty Williams between Games 2 and 3 of the Sixers' playoff series, league sources told ESPN.
General manager Rob Pelinka is spearheading the Lakers' search, which includes Williams and former Cleveland Cavaliers coach Ty Lue as central candidates in the process, league sources said.
The Lakers will interview Miami Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard and Lue this week, too, sources told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.
The Lakers received permission to interview Howard, sources told Shelburne.
Before his time with the Thunder, Williams coached the New Orleans Pelicans for five seasons.
