Lakers Rumors: Darvin Ham adds Jordan Ott as assistant coach

As NBA Draft week continues, new Los Angeles Lakers head coach Darvin Ham has been busy on a different evaluation front: Interviewing and assembling the best coaching staff possible. And after hiring Chris Jent as his lead assistant and retaining the well-regarded Phil Handy, Ham has filled the final front-of-bench slot on his coaching staff with Nets assistant coach and offensive coordinator Jordan Ott.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN broke the news:

Teams are limited to three assistants on the front of their bench, and between Ott, Handy and Jent, those slots are now filled.

However, that doesn’t mean that Ham is done assembling his staff. News leaked earlier on Tuesday that he is bringing former Bucks video coordinator and player development coach Schuyler Rimmer with him to Los Angeles to join his staff, and his former teammate Rasheed Wallace is also reportedly still under consideration for a role. But courtesy of Woj, we now know those roles just won’t be at the front of the bench. With Ott in tow, those positions are now taken.

This story will be updated with more information and analysis as it continues to develop.
