Sources: Lue finalizing 5-year deal to coach Clips


Ty Lue is finalizing a five-year deal to become the next coach of the LA Clippers, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Thursday.

Lue, who has served as an assistant with the Clippers, has been the front-runner for the team’s vacancy since Doc Rivers was dismissed on Sept. 28, sources had told ESPN.

He coached the Cleveland Cavaliers to the team’s only championship in franchise history in 2016 and reached the NBA Finals in three straight years. He was fired by Cleveland after an 0-6 start in the 2018-19 season.

As a head coach, Lue is 128-83 overall and 41-20 in the playoffs.
