Tyronn Lue Joins Clippers Coaching Staff

Tyronn Lue has a new job for this upcoming season, agreeing on a deal to join the Clippers as a top assistant coach, reports ESPN.

The gig reunites the former Cavaliers HC with Doc Rivers. The pair worked together in both Boston and Los Angeles.

Lue was hoping to team back up with LeBron James, who moved to the Lakers last year, but the negotiations fell through, with management instead choosing Frank Vogel for the role.
