The scoop on the hardwood is former NBA champion Rasheed Wallace has been tapped to join the Los Angeles Lakers coaching staff. 

Last week, Darvin Ham was hired as head coach of the Lakers and his first order of business is to assemble his assistant coaching staff. 

According to The Athletic, Rasheed Wallace has agreed to join Ham as an assistant. 

Rasheed spent the past year coaching under Penny Hardaway at the University of Memphis. 

Based on remarks Penny made on Monday morning, he expected Rasheed to make the move to the Lakers Nation.

I think Rasheed might be going to LA with Darvin Ham. That was the deal from the beginning.

If Darvin had gotten a job last year, Rasheed had already promised him that he was going to go with him. 

So, I’m thinking this year, with him getting the Lakers job, [Wallace] might still be going along with that process.

Ironically, as the news of Rasheed Wallace joining the Lakers coaching staff spreads, an old clip has resurfaced of him calling Russell Westbrook, who has had many challenges as a Laker, “the best player in the NBA.”  

Watch the clip below.
