Lue was Rivers’ assistant with the Clippers before becoming the Cavs’ top assistant under David Blatt in 2014. Lue then took over for Blatt in the middle of the 2015-16 season, guiding the Cavs to the first championship in franchise history.
According to Stein, if a deal is indeed reached between Lue and the Clippers, Lue would be named associate head coach.
Lue, 42, interviewed and was considered the frontrunner for the rival Los Angeles Lakers earlier in the offseason, but a deal could not be reached. He also was reportedly pursued by the New Orleans Pelicans and Houston Rockets for an assistant role.
He led the Cavs to three straight Finals appearances, but was fired after an 0-6 start last season. He compiled a 128-83 record overall.
