Messina an Assistant Coach on Lakers?

Its hoopsworld, but it affects us if its true. Maybe Lakers will trade for Bargnani?

Italian Coach Ettore Messina has agreed to work for the L.A. Lakers on Coach Mike Brown's staff.

According to Zeno Pisani of Rivista Ufficiale NBA, Italy, a deal was agreed to on Friday. Pisani notes Messina will serve as "consultant to the head coach" in a full-time position.

It would seem Messina will help Brown in a similar capacity that Tex Winter served former Laker Coach Phil Jackson.
