LA Times: Byron Scott, Kurt Rambis Out Of The Running

From an update on the Lakers' coaching search posted tonight:

The Lakers are adamantly opposed to offering other teams compensation via draft picks or cash to lure their coaches away, effectively ending any chance of hiring Portland's Nate McMillan, Cleveland's Byron Scott or Minnesota's Kurt Rambis, The Times has learned.

Phew. I would've thought that goes without saying, but good to have it confirmed. Sending draft picks, say, to San Antonio to hire away Pop is one thing, but can you imagine compensating Minnesota for Kurt Rambis? SS&R would explode, literally. You'd log on and there'd be flames and shrapnel spewing from your iPad screen.
