Free-agent guard Austin Rivers has reached agreement on a two-year, $6.4 million contract to re-sign with the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
The second year of the contract is a player option, sources said. Because New Orleans had previously declined Rivers’ fourth-year option, the most the Clippers could pay him is what his 2015-16 salary would have been if the option had been exercised.
