Former New Mexico State and Sacramento Kings coach Reggie Theus is on the verge of getting the job as head coach of the Los Angeles D-Fenders in the NBA Development League, replacing Eric Musselman, who left for an assistant's job with Arizona State.

The deal with the Los Angeles Lakers affiliate is done, according to a source, but Theus hasn't signed it yet; there is a tryout Saturday and Theus will be there.

Theus has been eager to get back into college basketball but hasn't been able to get a quality sniff of late.

Getting a head-coaching job, regardless of the level, is crucial for him to convince a school he's worthy of another shot.
