Ty Lue is finalizing a five-year deal to become the next coach of the Los Angeles Clippers.
The deal will give Lue security into the future even as the Clippers aim to nail down long-term commitments from superstars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George after a disappointing second-round playoff loss. Lue’s task will be to shore up a team that reportedly suffered from turmoil all season long and severely underperformed in the NBA Bubble this summer.
