Lakers moving on from Tyronn Lue becomes latest installment of weird saga

Lakers moving on from Tyronn Lue becomes latest installment of weird saga

One contract dispute later, the Lakers are back at square one and moving onto the next group of coaching candidates, including one coach the team was previously considering for an assistant job. Los Angeles was thought to be on the verge of hiring Tyronn Lue this week before talks broke down.

"LeBron James has quietly been about the business of trying to get Kawhi Leonard to come to the Los Angeles Lakers instead of the Los Angeles Clippers".

"Can't get Ty Lue - you got a young coach - makes sense for the Lakers to see what they can get for LeBron", Bell said.

Lue coached Lakers forward LeBron James in Cleveland, with the Cavaliers winning the title in the 2015-16 season when Lue took over for David Blatt midway through the schedule.

Lue won two championships as a player with the Lakers in 2000 and 2001. Beyond the palace intrigue, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith recently shined the light on those near Jeanie Buss pushing for a trade involving LeBron James (or at least the speculation about the possibility), which produced an interesting reaction in the off-shore betting world.

Lue was also seeking a five-year contract while the Lakers were only prepared to offer a three-year deal worth $18 million.

James signed a four-year deal with the Lakers last summer.
