Shams Charania of the Athletic reports that the sides agreed to mutually part ways on Friday afternoon, two days after the Lakers' last game of the season.

"As we begin the process of moving forward, we will work in a measured and methodical fashion to make the right moves for the future of our organization".

"I want to thank Jeanie Buss and the Buss family for giving me the opportunity to coach the Lakers", Walton said in a statement issued by the Lakers.

The former Lakers forward went 98-148 in his first permanent head coaching job. Since then, the relationship between Walton and the team has deteriorated.

Walton led the Lakers to a 37-45 record this season, missing the playoffs for the sixth-straight season.
