Report: Lakers not considering firing D'Antoni

The SportsXchange

The Los Angeles Lakers' struggles have led to speculation about the job security of coach Mike D'Antoni, but Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register reported the Lakers are not thinking about firing D'Antoni.

"I was told Thursday the Lakers are not considering a buyout or firing of D'Antoni as head coach," the Register's Ding wrote.

The Lakers signed D'Antoni to a three-year contract to replace Mike Brown, who was fired Nov. 9.

D'Antoni is 12-20 as Lakers head coach heading into Friday's game against Utah.

There have been reports about how the style D'Antoni has instituted may not suit the players he has.
