The Cleveland Cavaliers’ newly-minted head coach, Tyronn Lue, will have only coached 11 games when he is likely to be the head coach of the Eastern Conference All-Stars in Toronto next month.

“I talked to P.J. Carlesimo about it this morning and I told him I think Coach Blatt should coach it,” Lue said.
