The search is finally over for the Los Angeles Clippers, with the team recently announcing that they have named Tyronn Lue as the team's new head coach. The details of Lue's contract with L.A. have now been revealed, and it looks like the 43-year-old is going to be pocketing quite a hefty sum for the next few seasons.

This is via Jovan Buha and Joe Vardon of The Athletic:

Having won in Cleveland, Lue was looking for at least $7 million per season — commensurate with winning an NBA title. Financial terms of his agreement with the Clippers were not immediately disclosed, but his contract is for five years and believed to be in the $7 million range annually, league sources said.

That's quite a figure, and quite frankly, an amount that Lue deserves as he heads for a major challenge.

After parting ways with the Cleveland Cavaliers early in the 2018-19 campaign, Lue remained unemployed throughout the season. He then agreed to work as an assistant under Doc Rivers in L.A. at the start of the 2019-20 campaign, and in hindsight, that turned out to be a great decision from him. Lue, an NBA champion coach with the Cavs back in 2016, paid his dues during his (almost) two-year hiatus, and he's now finally back at the helm — and getting paid handsomely as well.

Tyronn Lue is going to be in a pressure cooker from the get-go, however, as he's inheriting quite a roster. He has two of the best players in the league on his team in Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. Needless to say, the expectations are going to be extremely high for him and is squad in the upcoming season.
