Can they just blow up this team? I mean like literally blow up this team and everything associated with it? They are quickly becoming the Clippers of the modern era and don't deserve an NBA team. Everything they do fails.

So, I'm guessing he will be the Lakers coach in a few years since we seem drawn to Cav coaching retreads.

They'd be better off with David Blaine.

At least he can work his magic.

Let's see if this new FO personnel can have a better offseason than last.....

1.) Anthony Bennett - Bust
2.) Earl Clark - Gone
3.) Jarrett Jack - CLE trying to dump him to the Nets
4.) Andrew Bynum - Gone
5.) Luol Deng - Gone
6.) Mike Brown - Gone

Franchise is a dumpster fire. No wonder Comic Sans was at the frontlines of the Lockout.

Blatt should have changed his name slightly and he could have coached in Mil.....

OMG….. :man10: :man10: It's downright amazing how "progressive" some of the adds were back in the day. Before the "nanny society" took all the fun out of life. :man12:

What's the policy on coaches quitting? Can they just sign a contract and quit any time?

Seeing how dysfunctional their organization is vs what he's coached in the past, I don't think he'll want to stay around long. Well, unless they draft Parker and magically become the next Thunder. :man11:

^ Yeah I think so, but they probably pay a penalty of the contract and then don't get their money. Didn't D'Antoni just leave? I bet the Lakers don't have to pay some portion of his salary since he breached contract.

Sources: Clippers assistant Tyronn Lue to become Cavs associate head coach

Los Angeles Clippers assistant Tyronn Lue has agreed to become the associate head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

In what's believed to be a financially strong assistant coaching package, Lue will partner with Euroleague icon David Blatt, the new head coach of the Cavaliers.

Cleveland general manager David Griffin wanted to pursue the hiring of both coaches after Lue was the runner-up in the process, league sources said. Blatt and Lue have been talking frequently, and Clippers coach Doc Rivers has given Lue his blessing to accept the job, league sources said.

In five years as an assistant under Rivers with the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers, Lue has developed into one of the NBA's most well-regarded young head-coaching prospects, and the Cavaliers franchise believes he'll complement Blatt well.

Rivers now has to replace three assistants on his staff after one season with the Clippers: Lue, Alvin Gentry (Warriors assistant coach) and Kevin Eastman (promoted to the Clippers' front office).

Lue, 37, played 11 seasons in the NBA for seven teams and won two championships with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2000 and 2001.

Wow, David. Could you be more idiotic for taking the job at the most disfunctional team in the NBA with an assistant that will probably get your job as ASAP.

Damn, find a new agent.

Hmm.. now why are the Cavs split between Wiggins and Parker? I'da thought for sure they'd take Parker, since he's ready to play, and they don't want Kyrie Irving to leave. Or maybe they do... :freak2:
