According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the LA Clippers have hired Ty Lue as their new head coach on a 5-year deal contract.

Former Clippers point guard and broadcaster Chauncey Billups will join his staff as a lead assistant, The Athletic’s Shams Charania added. The LA Times’ Brad Turner also reported that Larry Drew will join Lue’s staff.

Lue, a former NBA point guard, was a Clippers assistant coach during the 2013-14 season and again last year. In the interim, he spent 3 seasons as the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers, winning over 60% of his regular season games, making the NBA Finals in all three of his playoff runs, and winning the 2016 NBA Championship as a rookie head coach.

Despite a national reputation as a “player’s coach”–a designation regularly used to downplay the tactical abilities of Black coaches–and some concern that Cleveland’s success had more to do with Lebron James than Lue’s coaching, observers close to the Cavaliers team have a very high opinion of Lue’s command of offensive X’s and O’s, defensive game planning, and willingness to experiment and adjust over the course of a playoff series. That’s all in addition to, yes, building foundations for strong relationships in the locker room that allow him to hold stars accountable, most famously calling out Lebron James at halftime of game 7 during the 2016 NBA Finals.

Yesterday, Cavaliers podcaster Justin Rowan joined myself and Robert Flom on 213Hoops’ The Lob, The Jam, The Podcast to discuss Lue’s candidacy–and Justin made a compelling argument in favor of Lue that Clippers fans will want to check out. The podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and most other podcasting platforms.

As Lue steps up the Clippers coaching ladder, he will be replaced as lead assistant from outside the locker room but inside the organization, as former NBA point guard and current Clippers broadcaster Chauncey Billups will move to the bench. After a stellar 17-year career that included the 2004 NBA Championship and Finals MVP award with the Detroit Pistons, and a brief stint with the Clippers in 2012 and 2013, Billups retired several years ago and has worked in television while flirting with coaching and front office openings around the league.

Larry Drew, who is joining LAC’s staff as an assistant coach, was also an NBA point guard, playing during the 1980s. His career included a two-year stint with the Clippers in the very early years after the franchise’s move to Los Angeles. Drew has been a longtime NBA assistant, working with the Los Angeles Lakers from 1992-1999, Detroit Pistons from 1999-2000, Washington Wizards from 2000-2003, New Jersey Nets from 2003-2004, and Atlanta Hawks from 2004-2010. In 2010, he became the Hawks’ head coach and saw the team to a 126-101 record in 3 seasons, making the playoffs each year and advancing out of the first round once. He then took the Milwaukee Bucks’ head coaching job and was fired after a 15-67 record in his first season.

Drew moved from Milwaukee to Cleveland, where he was an assistant coach under David Blatt and later associate head coach under Ty Lue, coaching the team to an 8-1 record during Lue’s two-week medical leave in 2018. He then became the Cavaliers’ interim head coach in 2019, after Lebron James’ departure and the team’s separation from Lue, coaching them to a 19-57 record.

The hiring of Lue and Billups follows an interview process that saw the Clippers bring in top assistant coaches from around the league, including Darvin Ham from Milwaukee, Mike Brown from Golden State, and Wes Unseld Jr from Denver.

    Alright, let’s get to work now Ty. Would like to see them bring in Rondo and have T.Mann get the backup minutes with Billups onboard as well

  • Darius Miles Forever Darius Miles Forever says:

    Not the sexist hire but it’s a smart one!! I’m glad it was not Becky Hammon lol
    And… thank you Chauncey Billups!! Welcome back!! He knows how to fix this team.

  • Avatar ajk777 says:

    As I said in the other recent thread, I’m done with this team. They don’t know what the hell they’re doing and just hired a coach that is nothing more than a meat puppet. He’s NOT a championship winning coach. LeBron helped him out with that. Lue was just riding the coattails of his players.

    Kenny Atkinson would’ve been a much smarter choice. Hell, anyone aside from Rivers would be better than Lue.

    And making Billups be our Lead Assistant won’t make a difference. This is because Lue is not a leader amongst men and will just back down whenever a player gets in his face about an issue. We needed a coach that could not only fire the guys up, but also put the players in their place if they act out of line. Lue is none of those things. NONE!!

    Unless if they create a real super team with the limited cap space and draft picks we got, get guys that can support each other when they’re down, and get real leaders on the court (PG and Kawhi ARE NOT LEADERS. We all saw this during these playoffs), I’m out.

  • Darius Miles Forever Darius Miles Forever says:

    Next step: Sign & Trade Trez (or let him walk) and trade Lou Williams away. No more “tHeY caN sCorE!!” talks!

    If you want to reach the next level, you HAVE TO move on from both Trez and Lou who are not interested in playing defense.

    …You want to end up with being ANOTHER 1st or 2nd round Playoff exit!? Yeah, just keep them and play them! Lou & Trez show all night long yeah!! They can at least score! Let’s goooooo!!!! Fuck. Stop it. No more Lou/Trez show please. Move on from them. Just move on.

  • Avatar KingAlfonse says:

    I wanted Craig but I’m more than good w/ this. Anyone assuming that Lue was totally on board w/ whatever Doc did or even responsible for it has never been number 2 to a huge presence like Doc. If anything his time on the bench can help because he undoubtedly had adjustments/moves/plays he wanted to make but couldn’t.

    He was good enough for Lebron and the lakers to want him last season and they just scoffed at his contract ask.

  • Avatar Roaddogg For life says:

    I’m happy with it.

    I don’t think he’ll be as stubborn as the last coach. I believe he won’t let PG get a pass either.

    He definitely wouldn’t have played Trez in the playoffs since he didn’t play Kevin Love back in Cleveland.

  • Avatar John Maclean says:

    This is definitely the “do no harm” choice. He knows all the players strengths and weaknesses so no courtship necessary—can just get busy. While I don’t think he’s a genius I do believe him to be more introspective than Doc. It will also quell any extra PR chatter which is the last thing this team needs right now. Perhaps the greatest blessing of all is it gets Billups out of the broadcast booth:-) He and CP remain close friends. I can dream can’t I?

    • Avatar mlslaw1 says:

      “gets Billups out of the broadcast booth”

      Heavy agreement on that. Should please Sieman as well as those two were oil and water. Sieman would take a good natured nuanced poke and Billups had no clue what Sieman was doing.

    • Avatar osamu6238 says:

      I agree with this. Feels like the safe choice, and luckily this team is a contender with the safe choice, so I guess why go for the unknown?

      I probably still would’ve preferred a more tactician than a “player’s coach”, but I’ll give Lue a shot to prove me wrong.

      • Lucas Hann Lucas Hann says:

        I would agree on wanting a tactician, but say that I’m not convinced Lue is a “player’s coach” and not a tactician. Cavs people say he’s a tactical whiz and Locked on Clippers shared an excerpt on twitter today where NBA coaches were saying Lue is one of the best in-game adjustment coaches in the league.

        I think “player’s coach” is a label that sticks unfairly to a lot of black coaches because mainstream bias makes people think that black coaches must be successful because they can “relate” to black players, but never because they’re actually smarter than white coaches. It’s like “smart” vs “athletic” for NFL quarterbacks.

        • Avatar osamu6238 says:

          I don’t think it’s a purely black vs. white thing. I view it primarily as a former player vs. others thing. I mean I can see some racial undertones as well, especially when talking about black coaches that weren’t former NBA players (ie. David Fizdale). But if I had to group like Walton or Nash into one of those categories, I’d probably go with “player’s coach” as well. Definitely the media probably doesn’t help by portraying them as like the choice of the players, or talking about how well they get a long with the team (especially when Lue took over for Blatt).

          I don’t think any coach is purely a “player’s coach” or a “tactician”, otherwise they’re probably not a head coach in this league, but for the sake of simplicity, I think it’s natural to want to group coaches into one of those two groups. Unfortunately especially for Lue, he got labeled a “player’s coach” pretty quickly during his time in Cleveland. I do think for the former players, longer you spend coaching in the league, the more people start respecting your “intelligence” rather than assuming you got the job because you’re a former player. Like Doc I think is really established himself at this point in his career as probably a good balance between “player’s coach” and “tactician” (at least reputation wise), and guys like Rick Carlisle at this point people probably forget he even played in the league.

          Again, I’ll wait to see the product on the court before I really can hold too much judgement, but just my immediate reaction is slight disappointment. I’m sure a lot of Laker’s fans felt the same about Vogel last summer, and look where they are now.

  • Avatar dhpat says:

    Ty Lue is a reasonable hire and will provide stability. Even though Lue is a former Doc assistant, but he is his own man, and he is the captain now. Maybe, because he and Chauncey Billups are former point guards — they can provide that leadership that the team needs.
    We now need to address resigning JMGreen and backup point guard and center. Much to do.

  • Avatar Shaun Wickers says:

    Lucas + Robert – would love your guys’ take / opinion, as fans.

    Happy with this?

    Not sure why – but my initial gut reaction is disappointed. Slightly. At this point anyone’s better than Doc, but were we getting our hopes up to a taste of Heat basketball in Craig?

    Impossible to say for certain – but could Lue’s influence on Doc’s bench last year really be minimal enough that next year, sans Doc, we can safely expect change when it comes to installing systems and making in-game and/or in-series adjustments?

    And lastly – how about Billups?

    When gauging whether or not a broadcaster would make a good coach – I personally look for whether or not that broadcaster makes consistent incisive comments/suggestions/adjustments during a broadcast that would assist the team in that game. I can’t recall hearing that from Chauncey.

    Regardless – an exciting time to be a Clippers fan, and as always a thank you to the entire 213 team for guiding us through it all.

    • Lucas Hann Lucas Hann says:

      – happy with Ty Lue. Probably a B+ hire, which is the highest grade I would have given for anyone on the market (As reserved for stealing someone like Popvich, Jay Wright, Coach K, etc)

      – I was definitely on the Craig/Heat culture train, but as I admitted elsewhere in the thread, I do think the allure/potential of the unknown played into that. In reality, none of us on the outside can *really* know if he was the right man for the job. Lue is definitely a safer hire, with a higher floor and the same ceiling.

      – I think yes, Lue was not only a team player on Doc’s team but was also in his first year back w/ an established rest of the staff in a “coach-in-waiting” role where he was expected to get a prominent HC job this summer (just not LAC’s). So, as a one-year mercenary advisor to Doc he wouldn’t have been running the show. Let’s say you’re working in construction. You’ve been a foreman before, but an old buddy of yours asks you to come help on a site of his. You show up to the site, you do the job he assigns you to, and if consulted you might give some thoughts on the overall project. But he’s still the foreman and it’s still his project and he’s still running the work site. A lot different from a “if I ran the world” scenario, which Lue is now stepping in to.

      – I don’t have a read on Billups, wasn’t terribly impressed by him as a commentator but also not sure that that’s the best measure. Being a great public speaker isn’t a requirement of an NBA assistant coach, and just because he couldn’t give us gems of insight in real-time during games doesn’t mean he won’t be able to provide value in the locker room. It’s a middling move for me, but to be honest I think Larry Drew is a more significant hire, and I would have rather seen Drew in the #2 chair while Chauncey gained experience as an NBA coach.

      • Avatar TheGreatestShowman says:

        Gotta be something of substance with Chauncey than just being a former great player/leader and sideline commentator to have been courted for a couple of FO and coaching positions in the past.

      • Avatar Sweet Lou says:

        I tend to agree with most here. If I need to guess knowing Ballmer pattern so far I’m almost 100% positive they’ve tried
        Pop.
        He was my #1 option. Come to LA , take 1-3 championships and rise to the sunset – but that’s probably a fantasy as Popovic is probably not going anywhere and will retire as a Spur.

        I don’t like the 5 year deal – it’s too long but with Ballmer pockets I don’t think it’s a big issue.

        Other than that – from anyone that’s available in the market you probably can’t find any better than Ty Lue.

    • Robert Flom Robert Flom says:

      I’ll save my thoughts for the upcoming roundtable and podcasts, but I do like the hires. Ultimately, think Lue was the best choice.

  • Avatar jbugs says:

    Any idea how Lue is on player development? That’s one thing that I’d definitely love to see is this next phase of Clippers.

    One other point. I like that Lue is only 43. If he ends up being a good coach we could keep him for a long time. Ballmer is the type to make his people happy if he likes them. If Lue ends up being elite, it would be great to have a coach for generations.

    • Avatar TheGreatestShowman says:

      I don’t think player development is a high priority for this team. Putting guys in situations to succeed and maximize their talents while minimizing their faults, definite, yes.

      • Lucas Hann Lucas Hann says:

        would really like us to get a development whiz on the staff, though. The Clippers don’t have flexibility and if they keep Kawhi/PG past next summer they’ll need homegrown role players as Bev, Lou, Morris, and Green age out. Maximizing Mann/Coffey/Fi and/or finding 2nd round role players in the next 2-3 years is going to be really important if they want to contend in the back half of the KL/PG window

        • Avatar dhpat says:

          Isn’t the Aqua Caliente Clippers Head Coach Brian Adams — supposed to be developing NBA talent in the G League? Doesn’t our affiliate run the same sets as the NBA team?

          • Lucas Hann Lucas Hann says:

            Brian Adams, yes, and former Santa Fe Warriors/Agua Caliente Clippers/LAC Summer League head coach Casey Hill is on the staff as an assistant as well.

            But it would be nice to have like a Vanterpool or Unseld who is talked about in NBA circles as one of the top development guys in the world.

      • Avatar Based Freestyle says:

        “Putting guys in situations to succeed and maximize their talents while minimizing their faults, definite, yes.”

        If that was actually the team’s priority, Lue would not have even been interviewed, let alone hired.

        This is all about coddling the players’ egos by hiring who they wanted instead of finding the best coach for the team’s needs. Literally the same as when CP3 forced us to hire Doc.

  • Avatar chogokin says:

    Seems to be that a lot of folks here just think Lue didn’t have any effect on Doc whatsoever. But the one thing that I haven’t seen mentioned here regarding Lue’s influence on Doc is that Doc *did* make some adjustments in the postseason – he played Zu more minutes (even though it still wasn’t enough), and he made adjustments to some of the defensive schemes between games (e.g. trapping harder on the Doncic PnRs instead of switching every time). Obviously none of this was enough to overcome the problems this team had (re: Trez on Jokic will haunt my nightmares for years), but we’ve all seen just how hard-headed Doc can be over the years, and there were plenty of times in years past where Doc made *zero* substantive adjustments. So if I’m trying to look at Lue’s hiring from a glass-half-full perspective, maybe Lue helped Doc realize that some changes were needed and he was the impetus behind them?

    Lue apparently has support from the players, and supposedly Ballmer fired Doc because Doc refused to listen to any input from the FO/analytics department, so I gotta think that Ballmer and the FO hiring Lue means that he’s more open-minded about accepting input and making changes that are clearly warranted/necessary to anyone with a set of functioning eyes.

    • Avatar TheGreatestShowman says:

      Buy-in from the players has to the if not one of the priorities, right? Doc lost the locker-room by all accounts. So if there was a team consensus that Lue still had juice in the locker-room especially as still the new guy, then that’s huge.

  • Avatar Based Freestyle says:

    We’re screwed. This team was in desperate need of an X’s and O’s coach who could make adjustments, develop players and get the most out of the roster. Not another “player’s coach” who can’t win anything without a stacked team and all the stars aligning. Lue is just Doc 2.0.

    We’re looking at a second round exit at best followed by a decade or so of trying to rebuild with no assets. When is this franchise ever going to get its shit together?

    • Lucas Hann Lucas Hann says:

      The people who watched and covered the Cavs nightly when Lue was there resoundingly disagree with everything you just said.

      • Avatar Based Freestyle says:

        His terrible record without LeBron agrees with what I just said.

        But never mind the Cavs. I’ve been a fan of the Clippers since the Sports Arena days. This feels like an exact rerun of nearly every other coaching hire in my lifetime, and the results (as we all know) have been historically bad. It’s hard for me to expect this time to turn out differently.

        • Lucas Hann Lucas Hann says:

          “terrible record without LeBron” – six games on a team whose best player was an injured Kevin Love, and their leading scorers for the year were Jordan Clarkson and Collin Sexton. No coach is making that team good, just like no coach is missing the playoffs with the LeBron/Kyrie teams. Coaches make impacts in the margins, and he demonstrated making positive marginal impacts to those 3 Cavs finalists.

          These Clippers just aren’t those Clippers. Ballmer ain’t Sterling, first of all, and once you make that switch every domino falls differently the rest of the way. I get the eternal pessimism that comes with Clipper fandom but that doesn’t justify untrue criticisms of Ty.

          • Avatar Based Freestyle says:

            “six games on a team whose best player was an injured Kevin Love, and their leading scorers for the year were Jordan Clarkson and Collin Sexton.”

            Take those games away and he’s “only” 1-17 without LeBron. Not exactly an inspiring record when we don’t have LeBron on our roster.

    • Avatar dhpat says:

      I don’t share your outlook. We have a great players and a great owner. We now have an opportunity to have a new coach run the team. In the last 15 years, it was Mike Dunleavy, Vinny Del Negro and Doc. Doc has been running this show since 2013, but it seems like ages.
      As folks have pointed out, Lue already knows the players, and the players know him — so, they can start putting in changes now. No matter when the next season starts, it is already Oct. 15, we would normally be in preseason games.
      We have to give Lue a chance. Do you remember how pissed off and angry that we were a few weeks ago, can you imagine how angry Mr. Ballmer was?
      We’ll see how our FO does in signing free agents to shore up the personnel issues.

      • Avatar Based Freestyle says:

        “We have to give Lue a chance.”

        I gave Doc a chance, I gave Vinny a chance, I gave Dunleavy a chance, I gave Gentry a chance, etc., etc. I’m done giving failed retread coaches a chance. I’ve seen this routine enough times to know that coaches who more successful franchises than the Clippers didn’t want to keep won’t magically do any better here. I’d love to be proven wrong on Lue, but I doubt I will be.

    • Avatar wwshep says:

      To be fair it’s not like we were that far from winning a chip this year. All we really needed to do was bench Trez and we would have been hoisting the Larry OB. But dipshit Doc refused to do it and here we are… If any halfway reasonable person with eyeballs was coaching the Clippers instead of f’ing Doc Trez would have had his ass glued to the bench and we would have put Denver away in 5 with a great shot of beating the Lakers in the WCF. So, it’s not so much that we needed a coaching genius as much that we needed someone who wouldn’t actively sabotage the team (ahem Doc) for the sake of Trez’s feelings.

  • Avatar David Ramos says:

    You guys must answer this. Can Lue outcoach Erik Spoelstra, Frank Vogel, Rick Carlisle, Michael Malone, or any other X and O coach? If your answer is yes then we are winning the championship. If the answer is no, then we are not.
    Simple as that. I am being as objective as possible. Doc could not and so we lost. We got lucky in the Dallas series.

    • Lucas Hann Lucas Hann says:

      It’s a good question. I suppose only time will tell–I don’t think we went into this season thinking for certain that Vogel would outcoach MDA, Malone, and Spoelstra. And realistically, while he outcoached MDA and Malone his teams also had more talent than those teams. And I also don’t think he actually outcoachched Spoelstra in the Finals–Spo won that head-to-head but the Lakers were the much stronger team and won the series. Similarly, Doc was clearly outcoached by Carlisle in the first round, but the Clippers beat the Mavericks without too much sweat.

      Justin Rowan, on our podcast today, talked about Lue winning the coaching head-to-head against guys like Vogel, Thibs, and Kerr–not just the Cavs winning the series, but Lue winning the coaching battle. So there’s at least some reason to believe he’s capable of winning coaching battles in playoff series or at least doing well enough that it doesn’t tank us, although we’ll have to just wait and see.

  • Avatar snafu says:

    I wanna think this is Doc 2.0 since Lue has stated how he has looked for advice from Doc in the past. Will he be more than a motivational speaker like Doc or Mark Jackson? He better know his Xs and Os. Too bad they give 5 year deals right away. In my world i’d have a coach on a short leash until they prove themselves. We won’t have to wait long to see what system he installs. Its got to be better than Doc’s non-system.

  • Avatar David Ramos says:

    Being subjective now. The only thing i dont like is that there are videos of lebron taking control of the huddle and running plays when Lue was the coach. That is a huge red flag for me, but I am going to give Lue a chance. I am just gonna lower my expectations a bit cuz I dont want to keep getting hurt lol. Lucas says that he has outcoached other coaches during cavs tenure so I have a little hope. Only time can tell. I just want clippers to finally win a champoinship. My god.

  • Avatar David Ramos says:

    One more thing I wanna say. There are reports that Ballmer’s analytical staff brought reports to doc pointing out Montrezls negative statistical impact on the floor and Doc ignored it. Lue prob would’ve listened to that. I am sure Ballmer wants someone to listen to the stats and cater to this. I myself am a stats guy. Hire me next time Ballmer lol.

  • Avatar Thretch says:

    I want to follow up on Lucas’ earlier comment on the coaching philosophy. Player’s coach or tactician or developer? To me it’s more about being flexible to the needs at the time. A really good coach will adopt whatever role is needed at the time and given the resources they have. That may change week-to-week.

  • Avatar Thretch says:

    As much as I like Cassell, I can’t imagine he’ll be back. I mean … four point guards on the coaching staff?!

  • Avatar Oodypkt says:

    One obvious positive on this hire: he knows how to rally his team from 3-1 down.
    That’s for sure. 🙂
    If he can handle LeBron and win the title, let’s see how he manage Kawhi.
    It will be an interesting year.

  • Avatar TheGreatestShowman says:

    One thing I do remember about Lue’s Cavs teams is that they were pretty awful defensively. That had as much to do with roster construction as it did with scheme but it’s not like we’re brimming with ace defenders. Curious if he keeps Rex around.

    • Avatar chogokin says:

      Theoretically we have a lot of good defenders. Kawhi, PG13, and Bev (when he’s available) are all top tier defenders. Zu is a great rim protector. MM and JMG are plus defenders. Mann looks like he could eventually turn into a plus defender, and McGruder is also probably a bit above average. Shamet *can* be league average at times, but he needs the scheme to help him out. But that’s where the bottom falls out. Lou, Trez, and PatPat are all pisspoor defenders (though PatPat at least gives his best effort), and Coffey and Fi looked lost on defense in limited minutes.

      I think there’s plenty of defensive talent on this team that needs a proper scheme to maximize it. So if Rex was responsible for all the needless defensive switching and the PnR assignments then I hope he isn’t brought back.

      • Avatar TheGreatestShowman says:

        That’s what I mean, you named half the team as poor defenders. We know how good the starting unit will be.

        • Avatar chogokin says:

          Well it’s not like Coffey/Mann/Fi are expected to get significant minutes, and replacing Trez w/ a backup C who can actually play defense should help shore up the bench. Assuming the Clips don’t ship out Lou, a lineup of like Lou/Shamet/Kawhi or PG13/MM or JMG/Ibaka (or whoever the Clips manage to sign) shouldn’t be too bad defensively. Lou would be the only one there who needs to be hidden on defense.

          It would definitely be nice though to get a bit more balance in the lineups. Bench guys who aren’t as awesome at scoring but who can at least make a spirited effort defensively would be a welcome sight.

          • Avatar TheGreatestShowman says:

            I assume Ty will split duties with his AC so interesting to see if he adds a defensive wiz to his staff.

    Brad Turner’s article has a few interesting morsels – https://www.latimes.com/sports/clippers/story/2020-10-15/clippers-finalizing-deal-to-hire-tyronn-lue-as-next-coach

    “ Rather than focus on how candidates would have solved last year’s problems, the Clippers asked prospective coaches to treat the team and its future as a blank canvas. How they would get the most out of a roster that is still expected to enter next season as a prime Western Conference contender? Lue, according to people with knowledge of the talks, discussed a controlled offense that would emphasize speed and ball movement instead of heavy use of isolation. Defensively, the team is expected to again lean on one-on-one play while mixing in various zone looks. Lue is considered highly adaptable with his style.

    Lue’s year as an assistant helped him build relationships with Leonard and George. Yet the Clippers sought a coach capable not only of showcasing their stars but of guiding emerging contributors and young players too. They include starting center Ivica Zubac and guard Landry Shamet as well as young players such as guard Terance Mann and center Mfiondu Kabengele, a first-round draft pick in 2019.”
