New deal for Doc
LOS ANGELES (AP) — In his first big move since taking over ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers, Steve Ballmer has worked out a new contract with coach Doc Rivers. The pact keeps the former Boston bench boss in L.A. for another five years, through 2019.
Rivers joined the team in June 2013 and added president of basketball operations to his responsibilities two months ago.
He guided the Clippers to the best record in franchise history at 57-25 and a second straight Pacific Division title last season.
