Sources: Multiple Teams Interested in Tyronn Lue for Head Coach

[Tyronn] Lue wants to be a head coach again. There are at least three prominent jobs open where he’s being mentioned as a candidate — in Philadelphia, with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid; in Brooklyn, with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant; and New Orleans, with Zion Williamson, likely Most Improved Player winner Brandon Ingram, and Lue’s former boss from Cleveland, where they won a championship together, David Griffin.

Sources say a fourth destination that currently does not have a vacancy — Houston, where James Harden and Russell Westbrook star, and Mike D’Antoni is still the coach — could become a destination for Lue if the Rockets move on from D’Antoni.

It’s rare for three (or four) jobs to be open in the same offseason where there are multiple stars on the roster, and in at least two cases the teams were coming off playoff runs. Lue makes sense for each vacancy. One or multiple or none may ultimately make him an offer. And interviewing him now is tough — he’s in the bubble with the Clippers, locked in a tight series with the Mavericks, and the games are every other day. For now, all the teams and the coach’s camp can do is express (i.e. leak) mutual interest.

Cavaliers guard Kevin Porter Jr. is expected to be traded or released following an outburst Friday in the Cavs locker room, The Athletic has learned from several sources with direct knowledge of the events.

Porter, 20, who has not played this season due to personal issues, grew angry when he entered the locker room and realized the team gave his old locker to Taurean Prince, who was acquired in a blockbuster trade Wednesday.

Sources said Porter, whose locker was moved to the wall where the younger, end-of-bench players reside, began yelling and at one point threw food.
