Warriors grant Lakers permission to interview Luke Walton

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Lakers received permission from the Warriors to interview top assistant Luke Walton for their coaching vacancy.

Golden State coach Steve Kerr said Wednesday before Game 5 of the playoffs against Houston that Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak contacted Warriors GM Bob Myers, who said Walton could interview once the first-round series is done. The Warriors held a 3-1 advantage in the best-of-seven series going into Wednesday.

"Mitch has called Bob and we've told Mitch he's perfectly welcome to talk to Luke as soon as this series is over and we have a little break," Kerr said.
