Ty Lue may end up in Los Angeles after all.

The Los Angeles Clippers are nearing the hiring of the former Cleveland Cavaliers head coach as a top assistant to Doc Rivers, sources told Marc Stein of The New York Times.

Lue, who was fired by the Cavaliers after opening the 2018-19 season 0-6, was widely reported to be in talks with the Lakers this summer over their then-vacant head coaching position.
