Lakers Add Mark Madsen, Larry Lewis As Player Development Coaches

The Los Angeles Lakers have hired Mark Madsen and Larry Lewis as player development coaches.

"Both Mark and Larry bring a high level of credibility to our staff," Mike D’Antoni said in a statement. "Mark has endless energy and is a workaholic. He’s developed players at the college level and I think he’ll do a great job making the jump to the NBA."

"Larry has proven to be a natural at helping develop players for the D-Fenders since transitioning from nearly two decades of playing abroad and in the CBA," D'Antoni continued.  "We expect that he will make a great player development coach at the NBA level as well."

Madsen played three seasons for the Lakers and won back-to-back championship in 2001 and 2002.
