The Los Angeles Lakers have apparently moved on from Tyronn Lue. "We don't know what the hell is going on in Los Angeles". It seems he was also concerned about the team's desire to pick his coaching staff.
According to Charania, the Lakers are adding former National Basketball Association coaches Lionel Hollins, Frank Vogel and Mike Woodson to their coaching search.
The prospect of Lue feeling uncomfortable with two former head coaches on his staff is certainly understandable.
Williams and Lue completed their second interviews with the Lakers on April 24 and 25 (April 25 and 26, PHL time), respectively, the Los Angeles Times reports. "He does not have a no-trade clause, and now you have not given him the coach he wanted".
It's unclear where exactly the Lakers will go next with their coaching search. That included a 37-45 record this season that represented a massive disappointment, given the expectations that followed the signing of James last summer as well as the anticipated development of the Lakers' young talent.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente hopes to avenge the 2015 Champions League final defeat he suffered with Juventus .
Lue thought he should be paid like he was paid in Cleveland, where he had LeBron and he took teams to the Finals in three straight years, with a 2016 title mixed in.
Lue turned down a three-year, $18 million offer, according to Los Angeles Times' reporter Brad Turner, who cited a source saying Lue was looking for a five-year deal.
Despite James' addition, the Lakers missed the playoffs for a franchise-high six consecutive seasons.
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.
