Clippers agreed to a contract extension with head coach Doc Rivers on Wednesday.
Rivers had one year left on his deal, but it remains unclear on the number of years for the extension. Doc led the Clippers to a tenth place finish in the Western Conference this past year which was considered an accomplishment considering they traded away both Chris Paul and Blake Griffin. They've elected to give him another chance and they are surely hoping keeping Doc around gives them a better chance at some marquee free agents like Paul George and LeBron James. If they fail to land anyone significant then their roster is bound for another mid place finish in the Western Conference unless they choose to tank or can pull off a trade for a star like Kawhi Leonard.
