Mark Madsen will be the head coach of the Lakers' summer league team for the second consecutive year, according to Lakers' head coach Byron Scott.

Madsen led the Lakers to a 2-3 record in the 2014 Las Vegas Summer League before serving as an assistant coach on Scott's bench during the regular season. The Lakers 2014 Summer League roster featured Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson, both of whom will likely be back with the team if Randle's rehab continues to progress.

The team will also likely feature Jabari Brown, Tarik Black, and whoever the Lakers select in the upcoming 2015 NBA Draft. Las Vegas Summer League begins July 10th, and run until July 20th.
