Snyder is perhaps the most surprising of the three finalists.

Prior to joining the Lakers, Snyder was in charge of player development for the Philadelphia 76ers.

He also coached the NBDL’s Austin Toros for three seasons and was head coach Missouri from 1999-2006. He began his career as an assistant coach at Duke, his alma mater, under Mike Krzyzewski in 1993. He also worked as an assistant coach with the Los Angeles Clippers for one season under former Bobcats coach Larry Brown.
