Mike D'Antoni's agent says the Los Angeles Lakers have signed the former coach of the Suns and Knicks to a four-year contract to replace Mike Brown. The deal was confirmed late last night, two days after the Lakers fired Brown five games into the season. D'Antoni got the job over former Lakers coach Phil Jackson. The eleven-time NBA champion coach spoke to the club's top brass Saturday about a return. Instead, the Lakers went with D'Antoni, who spent five seasons coaching Lakers point guard Steve Nash in Phoenix. D'Antoni then coached New York for the past three seasons, resigning last March. The Lakers beat Sacramento 103-90 last night for their second straight win under interim coach Bernie Bickerstaff.

The Speaker of the Nebraska Legislature is expected to formally announce plans tonight to run for governor in 2014. 37-year-old Mike Flood has been contemplating a gubernatorial run for several months, and says he put off the announcement until after last week's election to avoid taking any of the focus off Deb Fischer's run for U.S. Senate. In an ad in Saturday's Norfolk Daily News, Flood and his wife, Mandi, invited citizens to join them at 7 p.m. tonight at the Divot's Conference Center for the announcement. Families are welcome.
