Lakers ask for permission to interview Bucks assistant Charles Lee
The Los Angeles Lakers are continuing to do their due diligence when it comes to interviewing candidates for their head coaching vacancy.
They have now requested permission to interview Charles Lee, an assistant coach on Mike Budenholzer’s staff with the Milwaukee Bucks.
Lee, who is just 37 years of age, broke into the NBA in the 2014-15 season as an assistant with the Atlanta Hawks under Budenholzer, who was then their head coach.
When Budenholzer left Atlanta and joined the Bucks for the 2018-19 campaign, Lee went along with him to the Badger State.
The Bucks won the world championship last season, and they could end up repeating the feat this season, as they currently hold a 3-2 lead over the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference semifinals, even without three-time All-Star Khris Middleton.
