Former Husker Tyronn Lue looked to be a finalist for an NBA coaching job... but according to Yahoo Sports... and ESPN, he'll have to wait for another opportunity.

Yahoo Sports's  Adrian Wojnarowski reported earlier tonight that former Russian Olympic coach David Blatt is the leader for the Cleveland Cavaliers head coaching job... and his hiring is "imminent."

Lue, seen here playing for the Lakers in the NBA Championship series, is currently an assistant with the LA Clippers under Doc Rivers.

Tyronn's name had been mentioned for the New York Knicks job as well... until the position went to Derek Fisher.
