Woj: Ty Lue's candidacy for the Rockets job gaining steam
Pelicans Talk legend Eyeran posted this in the Ty Lue catch-all thread.

Woj:

quote:

Clippers assistant coach Ty Lue's candidacy for the Rockets' head-coaching job has gathered significant momentum after a meeting with Houston's ownership and management Monday, sources told ESPN.

The Rockets are competing with the Clippers for Lue and could try to extend an offer before Los Angeles has completed its search process, but that isn't expected to happen before Houston meets with former coach Jeff Van Gundy this week, sources said.

Both Lue and Van Gundy are prominent parts of the Rockets' and Clippers' coaching searches -- and Lue has been the Clippers' front-runner since Doc Rivers was dismissed on Sept. 28, sources said.

Lue's candidacy has the support of prominent players on both teams, sources said. Houston had initially wanted to hire Rivers to replace Mike D'Antoni, sources said, but his talks with the 76ers moved quickly to a resolution.

Looks like Lue may be a Rocket or Clipper by the end of the week. The allure of coaching Harden/Westbrook or Leonard/PG may be too much to overcome for us if he was truly our guy.

Notice, as eyeran pointed out, they mention Clippers as the competition for the job with no mention of us.


Time for Griffin to get those 3-4 finalist interviews in and make a call.

And Jason Kidd's name is starting to pop back up for Pels

re: Woj: Ty Lue's candidacy for the Rockets job gaining steam
As I'm starting to get excited about the idea of SVG, I needed to highlight this from today's Woj article on Lue in the OP:

quote:

Lue has been the Clippers' front-runner since Doc Rivers was dismissed on Sept. 28, sources said.


The Mike Brown news just said he "made a strong impression", which Lue immediately responded to with his first on the record quote that I've seen in this entire process saying he'd be excited to coach 2 MVPs in Houston (compared to the Clippers who "only" have 1 MVP in Kawhi). If the Clippers didn't want Lue they wouldn't have leaked that weak Mike Brown story. If Lue didn't want the Clippers he wouldn't have responded through the press.

Come on Steve, you know you have the money to pay the man, just make it happen and take Lue off the board already.
