D'Antoni steps down
Mike D'Antoni has resigned after less than two seasons at the post. He went 67-87 with the Lakers, including a 27-55 mark this season.
D'Antoni took over for Mike Brown, who lasted just 71 games after replacing 11-time NBA champion-coach Phil Jackson.
The 62-year-old D'Antoni had one year left on his contract but wanted the Lakers to pick up his option year for 2015-16 to have any chance of success. The Lakers apparently refused, leading to D'Antoni's resignation.
