He had a 128-83 record in three-plus seasons in Cleveland.

The Clippers are hiring Lue as the team's top assistant coach under Doc Rivers, according to a report from The Athletic, which cites unidentified league sources.

During Lue's absence, he was often linked to the Los Angeles Lakers and appeared to be the frontrunner for that head coaching gig just a few months ago. However, the Lakers and Lue were unable to come to terms on a contract and halted further negotiations.

Marc Stein of the New York Times reported last week that the Clippers and Lue were working on a deal.

Ronda Rousey Injured On Set While Filming Fox's '9-1-1'
The gossip site reports that Rousey remained in character for the remainder of the scene, after which Rousey said, "Ow". Rousey broke and almost severed the tendon in her middle finger, as can be seen in the photos below, courtesy of TMZ .

Rivers has remained close with Lue, who was an assistant on Rivers' staff in Boston for two seasons (2011-13) and then with the Clippers for one (2013-14).

Lue has been out of the league since he was sacked by the Cavaliers in early October after an 0-6 start to the season.

Lue will join a Clippers coaching staff that features the likes of Sam Cassell and Rex Kalamian, and he should complement them well. This past week, they also brought in future Hall of Fame point guard Chauncey Billups to serve as color analyst alongside play-by-play commentator Brian Sieman.

All the LA Clippers need to do now is win a title, and with the roster they've established this offseason, that's something they could certainly achieve as soon as the 2019-2020 season.
