When the Cavs dismissed David Blatt earlier this season, everyone assumed that interim coach Tyronn Lue would take over in the long run, but that may not be the case.
As the Cavaliers prepare to face the Atlanta Hawks in the second round of the playoffs, head coach Tyronn Lue continues to guide the team without having signed a new contract.
Lue has led Cleveland to a 27-14 mark in the second half of the season and a 4-0 sweep of the Detroit Pistons in the first round of the playoffs.
He is already the highest paid assistant in the NBA, with a four-year deal worth a total of $6.5 million.
So why hasn't Lue been given a long-term deal on wax? It's simple: Lue hasn't proven himself yet in the post-season. The Cavs are looking to see how he handles the team and matchups as the season progresses.
If he fairs poorly in the post-season, it's not far-fetched to think that the team will look into some different options, possibly a coach that has a bit more experience.
