Clippers sign Austin Rivers and Cole Aldrich


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2015) The Clippers announced the signings of guard Austin Rivers and center Cole Aldrich on Monday.

Rivers averaged 7.1 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 41 games last season for the Clippers, while Aldrich averaged 5.5 points and 5.5 rebounds in 61 games for the Knicks.


Report: Clippers will re-sign PG Austin Rivers


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/12/2015) The Clippers will keep it in the family, with the team on the verge of re-signing point guard Austin Rivers as the team's primary backup, per the Los Angeles Times

Rivers, whose father Doc is the head coach, averaged 7.0 points and 2.0 assists playing for three teams last season, but shined in the playoffs, where he played well in the absence of the injured Chris Paul. 


Doc Rivers on son: 'I really want him back, would be great'


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/22/2015) 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.”

Clippers' Austin Rivers: 'I've never been a part of something like this'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2015) Clippers guard Austin Rivers told NBA.com he feels happier than ever now that he's playing under his father, Doc Rivers.

Rivers was acquired by the Clippers in a three-team trade with the Celtics and the Suns. The Clippers are his third team he has been with this season.

"When it first happened, of course (I heard it)," Rivers said. "People were like, 'Why is he doing this? It's not going to work. He's just going there because whatever or whatever.' It was a lot of negative. It was probably 70 percent negative and 30 percent positive."

Since joining his father in Los Angeles, Rivers has averaged 5.6 points while shooting a career-best 41.1 percent from the floor off the bench in 10 games. The winning culture and his role off the bench has also taken away some pressure.

"It's crazy how much changes in two weeks," Rivers said. "I've never been a part of something like this. When there are five seconds left in the game, Chris Paul has the ball. What pressure is on me? If we lose, is the headline, 'Austin Rivers loses the game?' There's no pressure on me. None. I can just go play."

Clippers unsure when J.J. Redick will return from back spasms


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2015) After leaving Monday's loss to the Nets with back spasms after just four minutes, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said guard J.J. Redick will not play until his back issues have healed, reports ESPN.

Redick missed last Wednesday's game against the Jazz after suffering a hit to his back two days before against the Nuggets.

"It's just spasms," Rivers said. "I think it's from that hit [against Denver]. He probably shouldn't have played, who knows, but we're just going to rest him until he's right."

In 48 games, Redick is averaging 14.4 points and 1.7 assists. Guards Jamal Crawford and Austin Rivers will likely see their roles increase while Redick is out.


Clippers speaking highly of Austin Rivers' defense after win


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2015) Clippers coach Doc Rivers received some criticism this week when the team traded for his son Austin Rivers from New Orleans. However, after Saturday's 117-108 win over the Kings, Clippers center DeAndre Jordan said Rivers gave them what they needed off the bench.

"He got a few key stops for us, and he really didn’t give up on any plays," Jordan said. "If he got beat, he was able to recover and make them take a tough shot, limit them to one shot. He’s a hell of a defender; we’re going to need that."

Rivers scored just one point in 15 minutes of action, but added one block on the night.
