Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James.

New Los Angeles Lakers head coach Darvin Ham has been taking his time filling out his coaching staff. There were rumblings that Rasheed Wallace would be on the staff but those rumors have yet to be confirmed. The former Detroit Pistons star wasn’t up for the top assistant job as Ham had his eyes on another for the closest seat next to him on the bench.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Lakers are hiring Chris Jent as the top assistant.

Jent spent the last six years as an assistant with the Atlanta Hawks. Prior to that, he bounced around all over the NCAA and NBA. Notably, he was an assistant for the Cleveland Cavaliers from 2006 to 2011 where he coached LeBron James for most of that tenure. He also has close ties to Ham as they were both on Mike Budenholzer’s in Atlanta for a season.

With the Jent hiring, the Lakers now have a coach who has worked with both LeBron and Ham, which should be an asset as the new coaching staff comes in.
