Luke Walton may have a fallback nearby in the event that he is shown the door by the Los Angeles Lakers.

In a piece for Forbes that was published on Tuesday, basketball insider Adam Zagoria quoted a UCLA source who listed Waltona€™s name among the potential candidates for the teama€™s head coaching job.

Per Zagoria:

One UCLA source threw out a bunch of names, including Virginiaa€™s Tony Bennett, Arizona Statea€™s Bobby Hurley, TCUa€™s Jamie Dixon, Texas Techa€™s Chris Beard and even potentially Lakers coach Luke Walton.

A second source was also quoted as saying that UCLA is going through a€œall the available candidates, some coaches that are coaching, some that arena€™t.a€

Walton, who is only 38, has brought the Lakers to a 22-19 record this season, despite not having LeBron James for the last seven games and counting due to a groin injury.
