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.

NBA Rumors: Examining Whether Rajon Rondo Should Be Next Star on Trade Block

Aug 25 2014 10:15am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

With the Kevin Love trade having gone from painstaking whirlwind of inevitability to completion over the weekend, there is a strange sense of emptiness floating around the NBA.  For the first time this decade, the superstar trade market seems dead. In the past five offseasons, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Dwight Howard and Love—all rightfully considered among the dozen best players in the league—have been traded. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, although ...
