Former Nebraska point guard and NBA veteran Tyronn Lue appears to be joining new Clippers head coach Doc Rivers in LA, according to Arash Markazi of ESPN.com.

Lue has been working for Rivers since 2009, when he joined the Boston Celtics as Director of Development.

The former Huskers was inducted into the Nebraska Basketball Hall of Fame earlier this year.

"I learned a lot from Doc," said Lue at the time of his introduction. "When I played for him in Orlando, he told me when I was done playing that I could come coach for him.

"It's great, I don't think I'd be coaching if it wasn't for Doc. Doc's great, just the fact that he doesn't sweat the small stuff, I've been on teams where a cell phone would go off and the coach would go crazy. I asked why he doesn't get mad over that stuff, and he told me to not sweat the small stuff, you have to save your bullets."

If the report is true, Lue would be heading back to the city where his NBA career got started. After being drafted by the Denver Nuggets, he was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers and played the beginning his career in LA.
