Lakers expected to target Tyronn Lue as coach

Tyronn Lue and Le Bron James

The organization is proceeding toward offering Tyronn Lue the head coaching job in the coming days and has no plans to introduce new candidates for the role, leagues sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne.

Lue's name has been connected to the franchise since Luke Walton was dismissed last month.

The Lakers reportedly interviewed several candidates, but Williams and Lue both got second meetings with the team and were atop their wish-list.

Yet Mueller never secured an interview with Trump, who agreed only to answer limited written questions on selected topics. The Justice Department on Wednesday called the conditions "unnecessary" and staff questions inappropriate.

Beyond his relationship with James, Lue has ties to the Lakers as a player.

The Los Angeles Lakers are still on the hunt for a new head coach.

Former Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue and current Philadelphia 76ers assistant coach Monty Williams are seen as the two frontrunners for the job.

Lue and James won an NBA Title together back in 2016 so it only makes sense that the superstar would want him coaching the young squad. Lue and James reached the finals in each of the two next two seasons, going just 1-8 against the Warriors in those series.

Williams, now an assistant coach for the 76ers, went 173-221 in five seasons with New Orleans from 2010-15 before being fired. There were high expectations placed on the Lakers this season thanks to the addition of LeBron James, although the team wasn't able to deliver.
