The Los Angeles Lakers apparently have their sights set on Tyronn Lue to be the team’s next head coach.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the former Cavaliers head coach is the “strong frontrunner” to take over the Lakers.
Ty Lue is a strong frontrunner for the Lakers coaching job, league sources tell ESPN.

He coached LeBron James for two and a half season with the Cavaliers.
Lue, while an okay coach, won’t be much more than a yes man for the three-time NBA champion. He’s not the kind of guy who is going to stand up to the basketball legend. (RELATED: LeBron James Appears To Bounce Ball Into TV Broadcast On Purpose)
I’m not trying to be mean here, but LeBron will walk all over him. How has it worked out in the past when James behaves that way? Not great.

There is a very high chance that Lue’s presence in Los Angeles would turn out to be a gigantic disaster. The Lakers need a strong leader. The last thing they need is a guy who will just get dominated by James.
If this is the road they go, don’t be surprised if the Lakers just continue to spiral downwards. I wouldn’t be shocked at all.
