Brad Stevens says he definitely won’t be leaving to coach the Lakers

Brad Stevens didn’t hesitate to dismiss the idea that he should take the head coaching position at the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Los Angeles Lakers are looking for a new head coach after firing Frank Vogel last Monday, and if Boston Celtics GM Brad Stevens is on their list, they can cross his name.

Stevens appeared on the radio show Toucher and Rich and was asked if he would entertain the idea of ​​becoming a Lakers coach if approached. Stevens replied: don’t entertain.

“No. Not entertaining,” Stevens said bluntly of the possibility. “First of all, I have no idea what my future holds. I’m in one of those positions where someone decides to walk away from me and that’s the world, we live in. I’m definitely not going to go to the Lakers. I know that for a fact.”

During his performance, Stevens also spoke about being part of the Celtics organization.

“How about the fact that I’ve lived in Boston for nine years and everything in my closet is green with Boston Celtic gear,” Stevens said. “My whole existence revolves around helping this team to be the best it can be. Let’s keep it that way.”

Stevens coached the Celtics for eight seasons before assuming the post of GM. He led the team to seven straight playoff appearances and they reached three conference finals under him. This season, the Celtics are No. 2 in the Eastern Conference and have a good chance of making it back to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Stevens stated he’s happy staying in Boston and Celtics fans should be happy to hear he has no plans to leave any time soon. Brad Stevens says he definitely won’t be leaving to coach the Lakers
