Great move. Probably the only one so far without any major complaints.

The All-Hands Team! Welcome to LA, hope he is better than Luke's stoner bros of yesteryear.

Imagine Bron signed off on this, one of his trusted coaches from Cleveland.

Superb hire

So who do we have now, Handy, Kidd and Hollins? That’s a really solid assistant lineup

Don’t know much about him except a lot of fans here wanted him so I think this is a great move. Pelinka is the man

Good hire.

Need and X and O guy for offense, who might that be? Hornacek? Maybe a guy already on a team.

Mike Brown's Laker staff was incredibly good. Too bad he sucked.

Really like how this coaching staff is looking, Handy is a proven player development coach and has a bunch of rings to come with it.

I have to admit I know nothing about him, but looking at the reactions it looks like he has the goods... another good move by Pelinka.
