VIDEO: Mitch Kupchak talks to Jaime Maggio about the draft and Kobe Bryant’s role in the Lakers’ coaching search


Mitch Kupchak is a busy man right now – after all, he has some pretty big decisions to make over the next few weeks – though he recently took a few minutes to sit down and speak to Time Warner Cable SportsNet’s Jaime Maggio about the Lakers’ seventh overall pick and the team’s ongoing coaching search.

With the Draft Lottery over and done with, Kupchak talks about how the Lakers are now able to focus on bringing in prospects for private workouts in the lead up to the draft on June 26th.

Kupchak also discussed what kind of role Kobe Bryant would – or wouldn’t – play when it comes to selecting the team’s next head coach.
