D'Antoni leaves the Lakers with a 67-87 record in nearly two full seasons, after replacing Mike Woodson, who was fired early in the 2012-13 season.
According to Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak, the Lakers were impressed with D'Antoni, despite the fact that they were apparently unwilling to pick up the team option on the last year of his contract:
D'Antoni will undoubtedly find another place to play his frenzied, high-paced offensive style, and it will most likely happen pretty soon. D'Antoni has had success in Phoenix and mixed results with the Knicks, so he'll be able to find a job.
My suggestion to D'Antoni would be to ignore the bright lights of a big-market team like LA or NY, and be more concerned with the makeup of the team.
