The Raptors want Tyronn Lue
Gary Washburn sent out this tweet yesterday:
The #Raptors have asked for permission to speak with #celtics asst. Tyronn Lue for position on Dwane Casey's staff, according to Danny Ainge

Unless the Raptors want to A: make Lue their backup point guard (he's still just 36 years old, and last played in 2009 for Orlando), B: give him the head coaching job, or C: pay him a ton more that he's getting now, I can't imagine why he'd want to leave Boston for Toronto. This tweet suggests that options A and B aren't happening, so it's probably going to come down to $$$. Or Danny Ainge could just tell them to back off.
