Los Angeles Clippers Promote Ty Lue to Head Coach, Ink 5-Year Deal

Ty Lue is back in the driver seat.

After a brief head coaching stint in Cleveland, where he won an NBA championship, taking over for David Blatt, Lue is back to the role of bench boss.

On Thursday afternoon, the Clippers announced that they have named Lue as their new head coach, inking the 43-year old to a five-year deal. Following the departure of Doc Rivers, many within the organization allegedly voiced support for Lue, who spent this past season as Rivers’ lead assistant coach.

According to The Athletic, Chauncey Billups is expected to join Lue’s staff, while long-time Clippers assistant Sam Cassell may return, assuming he doesn’t find himself in a head coaching role elsewhere.

In three-plus years at the helm of the Cavaliers, Lue led Cleveland to a 128-83 record.
