UConn head coach Kevin Ollie said he finds the open Lakers job “intriguing,” according to the Los Angeles Daily News’ Mark Medina.

Ollie has three years remaining on a five-year extension he signed in 2014, but has a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave for another team without incurring fees from a buyout, Medina reports.

The 43-year-old took over as head coach of the Huskies in 2012 and won a national championship that season.
