Report: Tyronn Lue to interview with Cavs
Clippers assistant and longtime NBA point guard Tyronn Lue will reportedly interview for the vacant Cleveland head-coaching position.
Lue has served as an assistant under Doc Rivers in both Los Angeles and Boston. He had a 10-year NBA career, and his name has been mentioned recently in relation to the New York Knicks' coaching search because he won two championships playing for Phil Jackson with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Cleveland is turning to NBA assistant coaches and former head coaches after having "closedly examined the college ranks," according to Yahoo. The Cavaliers also reportedly have interviews coming up with Vinny Del Negro, Alvin Gentry and Adrian Griffin.
Owning the No. 1 pick in next month's lottery, Cleveland has become a more attractive destination for prospective head coaches. It will be interesting to see whether they end up going with a big name or an up-and-comer like Lue.
