After the Los Angeles Lakers decided to part ways with Darvin Ham, the team has been on the hunt to find a suitable replacement. It looks like the front office has a prime target in mind: UConn's Dan Hurley.

After winning back-to-back titles with the Huskies, Hurley is focused on posting a three-peat. However, the Lakers have high interest in him and the feeling is mutual. Will a deal get finalized soon?

Per a report, Hurley told his players at UConn that he's indeed in talks with LA, but that no final decision has been made. Will he be able to turn the Lakers down, or is a move to the NBA on the way? We'll find out soon enough.
