Lue a Dark Horse Candidate to Coach Knicks?



While former Jackson assistants Kurt Rambis and Jim Cleamons are well-established candidates, the dark horse is Tyronn Lue, who has been an NBA assistant coach for five seasons, all under Doc Rivers. Rivers would need to grant the Knicks permission to speak with Lue, who was with Rivers in Boston and moved with him to the Clippers.

Lue has played for Jeff and Stan Van Gundy, Rivers, Jackson, Scott Skiles and even Mike Woodson in a journeyman career, in which he played for seven teams in 10 NBA seasons.

But what could help Lue’s candidacy most is he’s a friend of Carmelo Anthony’s, having met him through former Knick Chauncey Billups, who is best friends with Lue.
