The Golden State Warriors have granted permission to the Los Angeles Lakers to interview Luke Walton.
Steve Kerr said the Lakers will be able to meet with Walton now that the Warriors have advanced to the second round.
"We told Mitch that he's perfectly welcome to talk to Luke as soon as the series is over and we have a little break," Kerr said of Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak.
Walton is considered a prime candidate for the Lakers' vacancy.
Walton spent the vast part of his playing career with the Lakers.
