Tyronn Lue's contract with the LA Clippers will last for at least two more seasons. The 45-year-old coach has done a great job with the team since taking over in 2020. The Clippers haven't won a championship yet, but they've been contenders with Lue.

In the 2022-23 season, the team has had many ups and downs. The Clippers are 39-35 two weeks before the end of the regular season. While they have a great roster, they haven't been able to stay healthy, which has negatively impacted their record.

Despite being only 45, Lue has a lot of experience and has three NBA Finals appearances and one championship. He's hoping to take the Clippers to the promised land this season, which could certainly happen.
