The Los Angeles Lakers have added Kurt Rambis and Johnny Davis to their coaching staff.

Rambis, who got eight rings in hand as player, coach and front-office executive, worked for the Lakers between 1999-2009.

“Kurt is a great basketball mind, extremely good at working with big men and his experience as a head coach in this league is going to prove very helpful to our staff,” said Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni in a statement on Monday.

Davis has a 20-year coaching experience, including being head coach of Philadelphia 76ers (1996-1997) and Orlando Magics (2003-2005).
