LOS ANGELES (AP) Former Los Angeles Lakers head coach Byron Scott
says he thought he had more time to right the ship before the team
fired him last week.

Scott tells ESPN he was ''surprised'' and ''shocked'' by the move
even though he led the Lakers to the two worst seasons in their
history, including this season's franchise-worst 17-65 mark.

In an interview broadcast Wednesday on ESPN's ''The Jump with
Rachel Nichols,'' Scott explained that Lakers brass had told him a
few years ago that a long-term rebuilding process was needed for
the team. He says he figured he had at least another year to turn
things around when he was suddenly let go.

The former Lakers player says he'll continue to root for the team
and offered a vote of confidence for new coach Luke Walton.
