Former Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Steve Clifford has reached an agreement with the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats to become that teams new head coach.

Clifford, who has also been an assistant coach with the New York Knicks, Houston Rockets, and the Orlando Magic, spent last season as an assistant with the Lakers.

He reportedly agreed to a three-year, $6 million deal with the Bobcats, who replaced former coach Mike Dunlap, after only one year on the job.

The Bobcats went 21-61 in 2012-2013, the second-worst record in the NBA, only one year after compiling a league-worst 7-59 record the year before.

The franchise, who will be renamed the Charlotte Hornets, in time for the 2014-2015 season, have compiled a record of 229–411 in their 9-year history, and have qualified for the postseason just once, during the 2009–10 season.
