Report: Clippers close to hiring Tyronn Lue as assistant coach




 

The Clippers are loading up on former Lakers targets.

The Lakers tried to sign Kawhi Leonard this summer and Paul George the summer before. Even beyond players, the Lakers might have inquired about hiring Doc Rivers.

Now, Tyronn Lue - whom the Lakers tried to hire - could join Rivers' staff on the Clippers.

Marc Stein of The New York Times:


This would be a great addition for the Clippers. Lue is a good coach who has shown his fit under Rivers, previously with the Clippers and before that with the Celtics.

One of Rivers' virtues as a coach is that he attracts and works well with good assistants. Rivers has the clout not to get undermined and organization to tap Lue's basketball knowledge.

This would also add even more drama to the Los Angeles rivalry - not just because the Lakers offered Lue their head-coaching job before hiring Frank Vogel, but because Lue previously coached LeBron James with the Cavaliers.
