A few weeks ago, Lue’s contract talks resulted in an odd situation where some of his assistants were working for the team’s summer league team without a contract.
Lue led the Cavs to the best record in Eastern Conference, then went 16-5 during the postseason. The Cavaliers became the first team in NBA history to come back to win in the finals from a 3-1 deficit.
