Former Lakers athletic coordinator Alex McKechnie hired by Toronto Raptors

Alex McKechnie, who didn't have his contract renewed by the Lakers after spending eight years with the team as the athletic performance coordinator, was hired by the Toronto Raptors Thursday.

The Raptors said in a news release that McKechnie will be the team's director of sport science.

He will oversee all athletic training, rehabilitation and strength and conditioning.

McKechnie, who was first brought on board by the Lakers when Shaquille O'Neal had abdominal problems, is regarded as a leader in core training and movement integration.
