Ty Lue is considered one of the top coaching candidates this offseason and is seeking $7 million per season, a league source tells Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer. 

Lue is the prime candidate for the Philadelphia 76ers' head coaching job and is also a candidate for the New Orleans Pelicans and Brooklyn Nets, while he's also monitoring the Chicago Bulls' coaching vacancy.

Lue could settle for $5 million to $6 million per season despite seeking $7 million.

Philadelphia owes Brett Brown approximately $10 million on the final two seasons of his deal.

Lue and the 76ers have mutual interest.
