Who will get the job?

Apparently Terry Stotts Darwin Ham Or Kenny Atkinson.

Shams Charania from The Athletic:

Stotts is the safest choice. He won 56% of his games in his nine years as the Trail Blazers coach. His attacks combine simple games with more complex moves. Defense would have been a problem, but Portland’s defensive problems were mostly a result of the roster.

Ham is an unidentified candidate. Ham, a longtime assistant to Mike Budenholzer with the Hawks and Bucks, has developed a reputation for getting along and motivating people, as well as having a keen basketball acumen. But does a team with LeBron James and Anthony Davis, too eager to win, want to trust a new head coach?

Atkinson would be the most intriguing choice. After impressing as a talented young developer, the Nets fired him because they felt he was not the right coach to run a championship-fighting team. A contrary assessment of the Lakers would at least be convincing.
