At some point, the Cavaliers figured Tyronn Lue wasn’t a fit. It happened after an 0-6 start to last season, just a few months after LeBron James left for the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Cavs still had the likes of Kevin LoveTristan ThompsonJ.R. Smith and a few other members of their run to four straight appearances in the NBA Finals. After James left, it seemed as if they weren’t sure if they wanted to try to win … or lean toward development.

Once it became clear they would have to focus on the latter, Lue was fired.

Today, Lue is in the first season of his second stint on Doc Rivers‘ staff with the Los Angeles Clippers. The Cavs get their first look at the Clippers tonight in LA (10:30, FOX Sports Ohio).
