Mike D’Antoni resigned as coach of the National Basketball Association’s Los Angeles Lakers, team General Manager Mitch Kupchak said tonight.
D’Antoni, 62, who was hired in November 2012, had a 67-87 record with the Lakers, who failed to reach the playoffs this season. He previously was head coach of the New York Knicks, Phoenix Suns and Denver Nuggets, and has a career record of 455-426.
“Given the circumstances, I don’t know that anybody could have done a better job than Mike did the past two seasons,” Kupchak said in a statement posted on the Lakers’ website.
