The Los Angeles Lakers reportedly were ready to give Juwan Howard the head coaching job if he wanted it.

The Los Angeles Lakers held one of the most exhaustive head-coaching searches in recent NBA history over the past two months. It took them 47 days and interviews with six known candidates to land on Darvin Ham as their choice, but according to Marc Stein, their preference was a coach who wouldn't even interview with them.

In a recent newsletter, Stein reported that University of Michigan coach Juwan Howard was their preferred choice to replace Frank Vogel, and that Howard had been similarly coveted by the Boston Celtics a year ago when Brad Stevens hired his own replacement.
