The Los Angeles Clippers have secured Tyronn Lue with a renewed, substantial commitment, as announced by Lawrence Frank, the team’s Executive of Basketball Affairs.

“Tyronn Lue exemplifies what we seek in a chief strategist. His remarkable tactical cognition and innate ability to lead are enhanced by his special knack for cultivating deep connections with all individuals he encounters, from athletes to the support staff,” Frank expressed. “When we recruited Tyronn four years ago, we felt extremely fortunate. Our stance hasn’t wavered since. For the direction of our crew, we can’t picture a better fit. Tyronn is a foundational pillar for our organization and will continue in this critical role for the foreseeable future.”

“Directing this team has been a tremendous pleasure, and I am eager to embrace our upcoming chapter with Intuit Dome,” Lue declared. “I am deeply grateful to Steve, Lawrence, and all members of the Clippers family for this opportunity. Equipped with visionary owners, skilled executives, a robust roster, dedicated staff, and an outstanding venue, we possess all the essentials to claim success now and in the years to come. I am steadfast in my belief that triumph lies ahead.”

Over his four seasons leading the Clippers, Lue has tallied an impressive record of 184-134 (.579), piloting the squad to postseason contention in three of those seasons. In the 2023-24 term, he steered the team to a 51-31 (.622) record, seizing the Pacific Division champion’s title for the third time and becoming the first Clippers coach to earn consecutively the Coach of the Month honors. Under Lue’s guidance, the Clippers have celebrated four thriving seasons, holding the NBA’s longest current streak of consecutive successful seasons at 13. Standing third for coaching wins in the franchise history, Lue also steered the Clippers to their first Western Conference Finals appearance in 2021.

Before his Clippers engagement, Tyronn Lue coached the Cleveland Cavaliers from 2016 to 2018, posting a 128-83 (.607) record and guiding the Cavaliers to three straight NBA Finals, which included capturing the franchise’s inaugural championship in 2016. In his first season as head coach, he became recognized as the fourth coach since 1980 to win an NBA Championship and joined the ranks of only 14 individuals to achieve a championship both as a player and as a head coach. His coaching journey also includes a stint as an assistant coach with the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2013-14 season and a dual role as assistant coach and director of basketball development with the Boston Celtics.

Hailing from Mexico, Missouri, Lue enjoyed an 11-season NBA career that included championship victories in 2000 and 2001 with the Lakers. Across 554 career games, he maintained an average of 8.5 points and 3.1 assists per game. A standout at the University of Nebraska, Tyronn Lue was awarded First-Team All-Big 12 honors in 1997, and in 2017, the university celebrated his contributions by retiring his jersey number (No. 10).
