The Los Angeles Lakers and Time Warner Cable SportsNet will retain the services of television play-by-play announcer Bill Macdonald for the next three years after he signed a contract extension, according to Kevin Ding from Bleacher Report.
Longtime Lakers color commentator Stu Lantz is also close to finalizing a deal, per Ding.
Macdonald got his first taste of being the Lakers’ play-by-play man in 2006 when he filled in for Joel Meyers who had another broadcasting commitment. Luckily for Macdonald, the game would end up being a historic one as Kobe Bryant went on to score a career high 81 points.
Lantz has been involved with the Lakers organization for a number of decades and called games alongside Chick Hearn for many years up until his death in 2002.
