Report: Doc Rivers to Negotiate an Extension With the LA Clippers

by August 13, 2014

With the stain of Donald Sterling now having been removed, Doc Rivers isn’t going anywhere. New LA Clippers owner Steve Ballmer will reportedly start negotiating with Rivers on a new long-term deal. Per Yahoo!:

Ballmer and Rivers had been eager to forge a long-term partnership, and a California court confirming the authority of Shelly Sterling to sell the franchise on behalf of the Sterling Family Trust has cleared the way to work toward a new deal.


Rivers, 52, the president of basketball operations and head coach, has two years left on his original three-year, $21 million contract. Rivers is already one of the highest-paid executives and coaches in professional sports, and his prominence and pay could grow with the promise of Ballmer’s stewardship of the Clippers.
