The Portland Trail Blazers retired his jersey number, 20, in a ceremony on November 4, 1988. Lucas was hired by the team as an assistant coach under Mike Schuler and Rick Adelman during the 198889 season. In 2005, Lucas rejoined the Trail Blazers as an assistant coach under Nate McMillan.

On August 23, 1997 at the ABA's 30 Year Reunion celebration, Lucas was named to the All-Time All-NBA Team along with Hall of Fame members Julius Erving, Dan Issel, George Gervin, Rick Barry, Connie Hawkins and other ABA greats.

Current Los Angeles Lakers forward Luke Walton, son of Lucas' Portland teammate Bill Walton, is named after him.

Lucas underwent surgery for bladder cancer in April 2009. With his health continuing to be a concern, Lucas resigned his coaching position following the 20092010 season.

His son, David Lucas, played for Oregon State University from 20012005.

Lucas died at his home in Portland, Oregon, on October 31, 2010.

He will always and forever be The Enforcer
