HoopsHype Tyronn Lue rumors
It is likely that Rivers will bring Boston assistant coaches Tyronn Lue and Kevin Eastman, sources said. Another assistant, Jay Larranaga, is well-regarded by Rivers and the front office, but he's under contract for one more year with Boston. It's unclear how Larranaga fits into Rivers' Clippers staff.

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
