LeBron James's former coach is about to work as an assistant in the LA Clippers

Tyronn Lue, the coach who led LeBron James to the NBA 2016 championship at Cleveland Cavaliers, is on his way to the Los Angeles Clippers as assistant to Doc Rivers.

Tyronn Lue is about to sign a contract to become a Los Angeles Clippers assistant coach for head coach Doc Rivers. Previously, he was the largest candidate for the position of captain of the Los Angeles Lakers but the negotiation process was broken because the team wanted to hire Jason Kidd as assistant.

Tyronn Lue was promoted to head coach of Cleveland Cavaliers between the 2015-16 season to replace the fired David Blatt. He led LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and teammates to the NBA championship at the end of the season, helping the Cavaliers become the first team to win after being led 1-3 in the Final series.

Lue also helped the Ohio state team go to the Final for two consecutive years. After LeBron and Irving left the Quicken Loans Arena, the 42-year-old strategist soon left the Cavs after losing all six matches last season.

After being fired, Tyronn Lue worked as an informal consultant for the LA Clippers. Previously, he had a close relationship with head coach Doc Rivers as he accompanied this strategist as a player at the Orlando Magic in 2003 and an assistant at the Boston Celtics for the period of 2011-2013.

Tyronn Lue is no stranger to Los Angeles. He played for the Clippers' city rivals, the Lakers, for the first three years of his career, from 1998 until 2001, and won two championships at Staples Center.
