With it being fair to say that Luke Walton's days as the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers are numbered, rumors have swirled as to where he may land next.
Per a source that spoke to Sporting News, Walton could be making a return to the state of Arizona and taking over as the coach of the rebuilding Phoenix Suns.

But sources tell SN's @SeanDeveney he'll still be a top coaching candidate for teams like the Suns and Cavs. https://t.co/b9qoXgdzqf pic.twitter.com/nDtGAlqMrZ
Walton, of course, played his college ball at the University of Arizona before being drafted by the Lakers in the second-round back in 2003. And with the Suns making no commitment to Igor Kokoskov as of yet, it wouldn't be surprising to see Phoenix give Walton a look.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are also rumored to be interested in bringing on Walton, the team that he finished his playing career with.
Walton was hired by the Lakers two seasons ago to develop a rebuilding team before the team was able to score LeBron James
