Los Angeles Lakers, Tyronn Lue reach impasse in negotiations

Report: Los Angeles Lakers, Tyronn Lue reach impasse in negotiations

According to Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times, the Lakers are now targeting the former Orlando Magic and Indiana Pacers head coach and will interview him for their vacant position on Thursday.

The two sides had reached an impasse following discussions over his contract, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Shortly after the news was first reported, former Cavs player Richard Jefferson took to Twitter to express his opinion on the news.

But when talks between Lue and the Lakers broke down earlier Wednesday, apparently now everything is on the table in LA - including trading LeBron James.

One thing is for certain. Los Angeles' final offer to Lue, who helped lead the Cavs to an National Basketball Association title, was also reportedly not good enough.

The Lakers fired Luke Walton, who went 98-148 in three years at the helm of the team, in April.

The Frenchman is ready to hand in a "transfer request" in an attempt to get Manchester United to drop their asking price. You might develop a team that the fans like again, that we can see here and respect professionally.

Lue himself seemed to be of the mind that a deal with Los Angeles was nothing more than an eventuality over the weekend.

Lue coached the Cavaliers from 2016-18, taking over in the middle of the 2015-16 season.

What's even worse is that Stephen A. Smith is now reporting that people close to owner Jeanie Buss are pleading with her to trade superstar LeBron James.

"Nothing is out of bounds right now". Los Angeles was reportedly interested in having Jason Kidd on Lue's staff, so perhaps he'll now be looked at as a head coach.

He was sacked near the beginning of this season, but, as the report says, the Cavaliers still owe him approximately $10 million in contract payout, so accepting less from the Lakers would end up costing him.
