Lue took over as head coach in the middle of the 2015-16 season after David Blatt was fired. That team went on to win the 2016 NBA Finals in a historic 3-1 comeback against the Golden State Warriors.
The front office awarded Lue with a five-year, $35 million contract, however it seems that the franchise is planing to head in another direction for now as far as head-coaching duties are concerned.
Lue was reportedly adamant about not tanking the 2018-19 season, and it’s possible that the team’s front office now has a different vision for the Cavs.
