If Flip Saunders can be a team’s president and head coach at the same time, Doc Rivers certainly can too. The Clippers gave the former Celtics’ coach the new title—President of Basketball Operations—as part of a front office shakeup on Monday. More info from InsideHoops.com:
Kevin Eastman, who served as an assistant coach with the Clippers last season and has been on the sidelines as an assistant with Rivers for nine years, moves into the role of Vice President of Basketball Operations and will report to Rivers. Eastman has been involved in college or professional basketball for 24 years as either a head or assistant coach, and will now supervise all facets of the Clippers Basketball Operations Department.
Dave Wohl becomes General Manager of the Clippers after working as the team’s Director of Professional Scouting last season. As General Manager, Wohl will direct the Clippers player personnel, draft and trade decisions.
