Since March, basketball fans have been waiting on who’d replace Luke Walton as Lakers head coach. Former Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue was consistently top of the list.

Lue reportedly made a “lasting impression” when he went for his second interview with the team, and now ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski says they’re ready to commit to him as their new head coach. Wojnarowski also notes that the Lakers aren’t planning to interview any more candidates, which further hints they believe Lue is their guy.

There’s reportedly not an offer in place for him just yet, but league sources say that they’re expected to make the news official soon. As a former Cavaliers coach, Lue likely had the edge on his competition due to his existing relationship with LeBron James, who left the team last year for the Lakers. The duo brought home Cleveland’s first NBA championship in 2016.
