Doc Rivers on son: 'I really want him back, would be great'
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5/22/15) Clippers coach Doc Rivers didn't make a move to acquire his son, Austin Rivers, when he was first advised to do so. Now he's hoping to have the free-agent back on the team next season.
General manager Dave Wohl suggested Doc sign Austin before the start of last season, but Doc waivered. The Clippers instead signed Jordan Farmar, who they would later release before trading for Austin at the trade deadline.
“It was a gamble for me personally,” Doc Rivers said. “It was just a tough one for me. I was on the other side of not wanting to do it, and I’m glad I listened to people for a change. I wasn’t so stubborn. I give Dave Wohl credit, before the season started and we signed Jordan or anyone, he wanted that to happen and I didn’t hear any of that.
“In retrospect, it would have been nice to have him the whole year. It would have been better. That was a mistake. I probably should have.”
Austin showcased his potential in the Clippers' playoff loss to the Rockets. He scored 25 points, grabbed six rebounds and dished out two assists in Game 5 of the series.
He opened enough eyes that his dad is hoping he takes a discount to stay with the organization, he even threatened to call his mother.
“He's young and he clearly helped us, I think we all have to agree with that,” Doc Rivers said. “And I think he loved it here. I even think he liked the coach at times.
“You know, it'll be interesting. I really want him back and I think it would be great to have him back, and I think he's a great fit for this team. But business is business and it'll be an interesting thing this summer.”
