Mark Madsen and Larry Lewis have been officially announced as coaches with the Lakers.

The Los Angeles Lakers have officially announced the addition of Mark Madsen and Larry Lewis as player development coaches on Mike D'Antoni's coaching staff, the team has officially announced in a press release.

Madsen was slated to become the head coach of the Lakers Development League affiliate the D-Fenders. With the Lakers cleaning house with all of their assistants aside from Dan D'Antoni, Madsen will now move up to the Lakers. He previously served as an assistant in the D-League with the Utah Flash and was also an assistant with Stanford.

Madsen has been with the Lakers during Las Vegas Summer League.

Lewis has been a part of the D-Fenders staff since 2011. Prior to coaching, Lewis played internationally in six different countries and played in the Continental Basketball Association from 1994-1996.

Together, Madsen and Lewis have had eight NBA players called up from the D-Fenders.

The Lakers are reported to be close to reaching an agreement with Kurt Rambis as well, which would bring the assistant total up to four.
