Report: Ty Lue, Jeff Van Gundy among top candidates for Clippers head coach job

Tyronn Lue

The Los Angeles Clippers are facing a very important coaching search, and they may look in-house to replace Doc Rivers.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Clippers assistant coach Ty Lue is a leading candidate for the head coaching vacancy. Former Houston Rockets coach and current ESPN broadcaster Jeff Van Gundy is also named as a potential candidate.

Lue could be an advantageous hire because of his preexisting relationships with the team’s top players, including Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. He has experience in coaching a team with title expectations, having guided LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers to a championship in 2016.

Lue has widespread interest from around the NBA, and is a top coaching candidate for more than one team. His existing ties with the Clippers may make him the most attractive candidate there.
