Tyronn Lue Rumors

Billups could’ve been Cleveland’s president of basketball operations, and Lue’s boss. It could have been a conflict of interest for Billups, who would’ve had to view Lue’s job performance critically. “I talked to him about the situation,” Lue said. “Any time you get the chance to advance, be the president and GM, it’s always something great. I know it’s something he always wanted to do. “But I just kind of stayed out of the situation because I was so close to Griff, so close to Chauncey, so I didn’t want anything to do with it.”
Storyline: Cavaliers Front Office
Cavaliers assistant Damon Jones will coach the team in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas next month. Jones, 40, was in his first season as a full-time assistant with the Cavs in 2016-17. A former Cleveland player who rejoined the organization in 2014-15 as James’ personal shooting aide, Jones was one of two additions to the coaching staff made by head coach Tyronn Lue.
