Another season, and another coaching job for Luke Walton.

The former Los Angeles Lakers and Sacramento Kings head coach is joining the Cleveland Cavaliers in an assistant role. Somehow, someway, Walton is back on the sidelines for an NBA team despite an uneven coaching career up until this point.

Walton has a career 166-241 record and was let go by the Kings shortly into the 2021-2022 campaign. Nonetheless, Walton has returned.

The NBA world exploded after Luke Walton landed another job

Luke Walton is back on the NBA sideline. Somehow.

Sure, his time in Los Angeles and Sacramento hasn’t gone so well, but there is still hope. Walton was a terrific interim head coach for the Golden State Warriors — although that team was loaded from top to bottom.

After the news broke about Walton’s new gig, the NBA world exploded with disbelief.

Oh, and another interesting note is that Walton finished his NBA playing career with the Cavaliers, so this is somewhat of a homecoming. Walton spent his final two years playing for the Cavaliers and is now heading back to join J.B. Bickerstaff’s coaching staff.

Walton proved to be a terrific assistant on Steve Kerr’s Golden State staff but didn’t find success in either LA or Sacramento. So, maybe this is the right move for Walton and the Cavaliers.
