Jeanie Buss Rumors

By all appearances, the search for Scott’s replacement will be run by Jeanie’s brother, Jim, and Kupchak. It’s a critical hire, as the window during which Jim Buss promised to restore the Lakers to championship contention is set to close after the 2016-17 season. Jeanie Buss has alluded to her brother’s self-imposed timeline on several occasions, saying Jim would resign if the Lakers failed to make it beyond the second round of the playoffs by next season.
