The Los Angeles Lakers reportedly have interviewed former Portland Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts for their coaching vacancy.

The Lakers also have shown interest in meeting with Milwaukee Bucks assistant Darvin Ham and Toronto Raptors assistant Adrian Griffin, according to Friday’s ESPN report.

Los Angeles fired coach Frank Vogel last month after finishing 33-49 and missing the playoffs.

Stotts, 64, compiled a 402-318 record in nine seasons with the Trail Blazers from 2012-21, reaching the playoffs in each of his last eight seasons.

Including earlier coaching stops with the Atlanta Hawks (2002-04) and Milwaukee Bucks (2005-07), Stotts’ overall record as an NBA head coach is 517-486.
