Chauncey Billups could join Tyronn Lue as an associate head coach, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Lue has been linked with a move to NBA teams like the Brooklyn Nets and the New Orleans Pelicans, which are in search for a new head coach.

“Here’s something else that makes Lue’s candidacy even more intriguing to contenders: Teams are aware that Lue has been talking with Chauncey Billups about joining his potential staff as an associate head coach, sources tell ESPN.

Billups had been grooming himself for a top front office role, but turned down the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017, and his interest in leaving television for the team-side has evolved from the front office to coaching, sources said,” Wojnarowski reports.

Lue is currently working as an assistant for the Los Angeles Clippers.
