Jovan Buha of The Athletic is reporting that Tyronn Lue is a candidate in the Clippers' coaching search.
Lue was an assistant with LA last season and is already said to be a candidate for other gigs around the league, namely Philadelphia. ESPN previously reported that analyst Jeff Van Gundy is in the mix as well, and he's been connected to the Rockets. Monday's surprising dismissal of Doc Rivers was said to have been the result of several things building up over the years rather than this past season's disappointing finish, and the team is looking for a high-level thinker who "values progress and innovation," as well as someone who can better develop young players and uphold an identity built on toughness and grit.
