April 23, 2014 Updates

A sleeper possibility in New York could be Tyronn Lue, who has been hailed as a future head coach by Alvin Gentry and played for Jackson.

The Clippers found themselves in need of depth in the wake of injuries to Matt Barnes, J.J. Redick, Maalik Wayns and most recently Reggie Bullock. Jackson logged 12 minutes in the Clippers' 96-88 win over Boston, going 0-for-3 in his first game since April. The San Antonio Spurs waived Jackson on April 12, just days before the postseason began. "I felt pretty good. I was winded,” Jackson said after the game. "My legs were tired as soon as I got in the game, but it felt good to get back out there. Getting a win in the first one is definitely sweet.” RealGM

League sources say the Raptors have already conducted initial interviews with assistant coach hopefuls Nick Nurse of the Rio Grande Vipers of the D League, former Raptor and current Brooklyn assistant Popeye Jones and ex- NBAer Tyronn Lue. Whether those three have to be re-interviewed once Ujiri is on the job full-time remains to be seen but the future of the current staff is cloudier than it’s ever been. None have contracts guaranteed past the end of June and it’s expected none will be in town this week when some players come back for workout sessions with members of the team’s training staff.

Lue, 33, was an NBA point guard for 11 seasons before not getting any guaranteed offers last season and then failing to make the Celtics. So he took a job working with the team's young players. But now Lue wants back on the court. The free agent said in an interview with FanHouse at the NBA Summer League he's open for offers. "I want to come back because my body feels good,'' said Lue, who has career averages of 8.5 points and 3.1 assists and last played for Orlando in 2008-09. "I'm a little out of shape, but I'm working out.'' FanHouse.com
