Lakers Messina an Assistant Coach on Lakers?

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

Quote:
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.
