The Lakers will formally introduce Coach Mike D'Antoni on Thursday after practice.
Both D'Antoni and General Manager Mitch Kupchak will address the media at the team's facility in El Segundo.
After flirting with Phil Jackson to return for a third coaching stint with the franchise, the Lakers reversed course and inked a four-year deal with D'Antoni, the final year a team option.
D'Antoni told Steve Mason and John Ireland on AM 710 radio, "The team is built to win a championship this year and next year. That's what the expectations are. I know that's high."
Formerly with the Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks and Denver Nuggets, D'Antoni had greatest success in the NBA when paired with point guard Steve Nash.
