LOS ANGELES — ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher is reporting that former Utah basketball coach Jim Boylen is being added to the coaching staff of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Boylen's undisclosed salary would ease or eliminate the three-year, $2 million buyout he was due to receive from Utah after being fired in March.
