LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Lakers have appointed Mike D'Antoni as their new coach on a multi-year contract, the NBA team's spokesman John Black announced.

D'Antoni takes over from Mike Brown, who was sacked last Friday.

The underachieving team is due to hold a press conference to announce the deal on either Tuesday or Wednesday.

Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash have both supported the appointment, according to the Lakers' website on Monday.

Nash played for D'Antoni in Phoenix when the point guard won consecutive MVP awards in 2005 and 2006.
