Tyronn Lue is nearing a deal to become one of the top assistant coaches to Doc Rivers and the Los Angeles Clippers, according to Ohm Youngmisuk and Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports.
In the end, Lue found his way to LA after all. Following the Lakers' highly publicized failed courtship of Lue, he remained searching for other Head Coaching opprotunities. He had reportedly turned down assistant coach offers from both the Rockets and the Pelicans, but ultimately decided to rejoin his former boss Doc Rivers as a lead assistant to one of the league's best teams. This will add a fun wrinkle to the LA vs. LA battle that is brewing at the Staples Center.
