Lakers interested in Roy Williams?

Could head coach Roy Williams be headed to the Lakers? After the news that James McAdoo was leaving for the NBA, mostly it seems because he just got married to UNC volleyball player Lauren Adkins, it felt like tranquility was coming back to the North Carolina basketball program.
