and Johnny Davis as assistant coaches on Monday.
Rambis, who played during the Lakers' "Showtime" era and helped the team win
NBA titles in 1982, 1985, 1987 and 1988, previously served three stints with
Los Angeles as an assistant coach. He took over as the team's head coach for
13 games during the 1998-99 season.
"Kurt and Johnny bring many years of NBA experience both as coaches and as
former players to this team," Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said. "Kurt is a
great basketball mind, extremely good at working with big men and his
experience as a head coach in this league is going to prove very helpful to
our staff. Johnny is a two-time NBA head coach with years of experience
playing as well as coaching in this league."
Davis has over two decades of NBA coaching experience and spent the last two
