The Los Angeles Clippers will use the triangle offense under Ty Lue after Kawhi Leonard expressed a desire to use the offense in a few sets this season.
Lue ran the triangle offense while with the Los Angeles Lakers early in his playing career. Leonard has long studied Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, who thrived in the triangle.
“We have put in two or three sets of the triangle and let Kawhi play in those spaces where Kobe and Jordan played in those spots as well,” Lue said before Sunday’s practice. “He loves those two players and he really respects and looks up to those guys. So, we just try to put him in position. I was able to play with both those guys and I also played in the triangle, so just trying to teach him that as well … teach our team as well.”
