Clippers sign Doc Rivers to an extension
The Clippers have extended the contract of their head coach Doc Rivers. Via CBS Sports:
The Clippers announced on Wednesday that Rivers will be that leader for even longer than originally expected. Rivers and Ballmer agreed to a contract extension that will keep him around through at least the 2018-19 season.
