The Clippers are set to hire John Lucas, the former NBA player and coach, as an assistant on Mike Dunleavy's staff.

Storylink1 Lucas was over at the Clippers' headquarters in Playa Vista this morning and the deal was expected to be completed later today.

It will be a one-year contract.

Lucas, whose head coaching record was 174-258 in stops at San Antonio, Philadelphia and Cleveland, has been running highly regarded camps and clinics in Houston, training the likes of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James and many of the current Clipper players.
