The Los Angeles Clippers named Tyronn Lue as their new head coach on Tuesday.
"The pieces we need are in place – committed ownership, smart management and elite talent, on and off the court, in the NBA’s best market,” Lue said in a statement.
"My familiarity with the organization, particularly Mr. Ballmer and Lawrence, confirmed this is where I want to be. We have work to do to become champions, but we have the motivation, the tools, and the support to get there. I’m excited to get started," he added.
Terms of the deal were not shared.
He will become the franchise’s 26th head coach after having served as an assistant coach for the Clippers during the 2019-20 season.
