CLEVELAND -- Tyronn Lue is joining the Cavaliers as a coach after all. Air Max Thea Svart Dam . Lue, who had two interviews during Clevelands recent coaching search but didnt get the job, was hired as an associate head coach on new Cavs coach David Blatts staff. General manager David Griffin was impressed with Lue as he looked for a coach, and believes the former Los Angeles Clippers assistant can help the Cavs rebound from a tough season. "Over the past several weeks, it became clear that Ty could play a key role in our teams future success," said Griffin. "Ty fits our culture and vision for the franchise. His successful experience as both a player and coach is going to help us tremendously. Tyronn Lue joining Coach Blatts staff is more than exciting to all of us here in Cleveland. The leadership and knowledge of Ty is going to be critically important as we move into a new era of competitive Cavaliers basketball." Yahoo! first reported Lues hiring. Lue was one of the finalists to get the Cleveland job before it went to Blatt, who signed a three-year contract with a fourth year club option on Friday. The 55-year-old Blatt has never coached in the NBA -- or the U.S. -- so bringing in a coach with Lues experience will help him and give the Cavs an insurance policy. "I could not be happier that Ty will be joining the Cavaliers coaching staff as my top assistant," Blatt said. "I look forward to leveraging all of his experiences and expertise into our teams development. "This is a character guy and winner himself who played and worked with some of the greatest talents and successful leaders in NBA history. I am thrilled to have him by my side as we get to work in Cleveland." The 37-year-old Lue played guard for 11 seasons with seven NBA teams. He won NBA titles as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers in 2000 and 2001. Lue spent the past five years working on Doc Rivers staff in Boston and Los Angeles and is regarded as one of the leagues rising young coaches. Lue thanked Rivers for his "deep support, mentorship and friendship" and "helping prepare me so well for this next step and challenge." Lue sees Cleveland as a great opportunity. "Through numerous discussions with David and Griff, I felt Cleveland is a great situation for me," he said. "I believe my background will help me play a key part in helping achieve the vision that the leadership of this franchise has for its team. I cant wait to get to work with Coach Blatt and our players." As the Cavs consider other candidates to join Blatts staff, they are finalizing plans for Thursdays draft. Cleveland has the No. 1 overall pick for the second year in a row and is expected to select either Duke forward Jabari Parker or Kansas forward Andrew Wiggins. Air Max 90 Diamondback Shanghai .

Hall will lead the Blue Bombers (1-6) into Guelph, Ont., on Saturday for the second of a home-and-home series against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (3-4). Catch the action live on TSN and TSN Mobile TV, today at 12:30pm et/9:30am pt. Hamilton beat Winnipeg 37-18 at Investors Group Field last week in Halls first start with the team. The Arizona Cardinals quarterback was 18-for-30 passing for 241 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. But hes pleased with how Winnipegs offence is shaping up under Bellefeuille, who took over from the fired Gary Crowton on Sunday. "Coach Bellefeuilles been hard on us, but its been good for us," Hall told reporters Thursday. "He pays attention to the details and makes sure we execute the stuff we have in, so I think were ready." Bellefeuille is no stranger to the Ticats, having served as Hamiltons head coach from 2009-11. He says Winnipegs offence has been improving in practice over the week. "Each day weve had less things to correct, each day theyve played faster and understand what were supposed to be doing," he said. "So the question now is how is that going to translate into game day when the speed is a little bit different and the bullets are live." A big reason for Winnipegs dismal start is its anemic offence, which is last in the league in points scored and second-last in net yards with Hall, veteran Buck Pierce and Justin Goltz all having started. That led to the dismissal of Crowton, who came to Winnipeg in 2012 with no previous CFL coaching experience. By contrast, Bellefeuille has extensive experience at the CIS and CFL levels and Hall said his new offensive co-ordinator has helped him break downn an opposing defence. Air Max Thea Vita. "Hes just smart, and he makes things make sense," Hall said. "Hes really good at helping me understand the defences and what coverage theyre in, and that kind of dictates where I go with the ball. "So if anything hes really helping me with my reads and helping me understand the defence." Winnipeg is desperate for a win, its only victory coming in week 2 against Montreal. Hamilton can get to .500 and reclaim sole possession of second in the East Division with a win. Hamilton also started poorly but is looking for its third straight win. Two of its three victories this year have come against Winnipeg. Ticats head coach Kent Austin acknowledged this Bombers squad will be a different one with Bellefeuille running the offence. "Weve done our due diligence with respect to Marcel, but Im sure hell have some new wrinkles for us like we will for them," he said. While a .500 record would be respectable, getting to that level is of little significance for Austin. "Theres a psychological benefit to just winning, doesnt matter what your record is at the time," he said. "The most important thing is focusing on the current game and making sure that we play better than the week before. "We dont highlight on things like out record or somebody elses record. We highlight the tangible aspects of this game that things we need to improve on in order to have an opportunity to win." While Hamilton won last weeks game handily, Winnipeg was solid on special teams, particularly on coverage of kick and punt returns. Austin said it something hes tried to address for Saturdays game. "Listen, they do a great job on (special) teams," he said. "Its a real credit for them and we need to meet their level of production."
