NBA: Doc Rivers and LA Clippers Reportedly Have Mutual Interest

Jun 13 2013, 11:00pm CDT | by

Boston Celtics head coach Glenn "Doc" Rivers and the Los Angeles Clippers reportedly have a strong mutual interest, according to several sources.

Boston head coach Doc Rivers and the Los Angeles Clippers reportedly have a strong mutual interest, according to several sources. 

ESPN cites sources in its June 13 update which says Rivers is highly intrigued by the possibility of him coaching the Clippers after nine seasons and one championship with Boston in the event he parts ways with the Celtics. The Clippers would instantly put Rivers at the top of their list of coaching prospects which include Brian Shaw, Byron Scott and Lionel Hollins should the possibility come up.

CBS Sports' Matt Moore says the Celtics would want significant compensation from any team that hires Rivers as he is still reportely has three years and $21 million left in his contract which he re-signed over the summer

Moore also reports via his colleague Ken Berger and his sources that Rivers does not want to be involved in any potential rebuilding situation. 

"[Doc] has been pretty open that he doesn't want to coach in a rebuilding environment. And if they don't make some moves, they're not going to have a rebuilding environment. That's Danny's challenge. 

Berger says Ainge agrees with Rivers that a rebuilding situation isn't ideal for the Celtics. However, an aging core and a payroll "is pushing up against the dreaded luxury-tax apron" limits Boston's options. 

If the Celtics do rebuild, Rivers may find himself going for the Clippers' coaching vacancy as ESPN's Chris Brouchard cited a source on Wednesday who said the Boston coach feels it's time for a change.

"Doc loves coaching. He loves coaching in Boston. But he feels it may be time for a change."

NBC Sports' Dan Feldman says "The Celtics are within their legal and ethical rights to block Rivers from defecting to the Clippers. Rivers is also well within his rights to explore with the Celtics a move to Los Angeles. 

The NBA universe will now await Doc Rivers' next move.

Should Los Angeles Clippers Be Worried About Losing DeAndre Jordan?

Aug 21 2014 6:45pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It's natural to view Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan as a somewhat dispensable third wheel to Chris Paul and Blake Griffin. When you play with two of the best talents in the league, that will happen. It might even be easy to think that because Jordan isn't particularly skilled, he could be replaced rather easily. That's a dangerous line of thinking, though. Over the course of last season, Jordan proved that he's critical to the ...

Can Rajon Rondo Make Himself the Center of Boston Celtics Rebuild?

Aug 19 2014 7:32am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The NBA mechanism moving around Boston Celtics star Rajon Rondo has never been a quiet one, with trade talks taking the place of regularly scheduled programming on a continuous loop since the summer of 2007. The player himself has often been a part of that noisy mechanism, with publicized outbursts during games, after them and even behind closed doors. However, this summer and maybe even more so since his ACL injury 20 months ago, Rondo has been pretty qui ...

Are LA Clippers One Piece Away from True NBA Title Contention?

Aug 18 2014 7:13pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Let's get something out of the way. The Los Angeles Clippers, as currently constructed, are title contenders.  The Clippers have the league's best point guard in Chris Paul, one of the most dynamic offensive talents in the league in Blake Griffin, a defensive anchor in DeAndre Jordan and tons of three-point shooting to surround them with. This was the league's best offense in terms of efficiency last year, according to Basketball-Reference.com, a ...
