Professional basketball in the city of Los Angeles has undergone an upheaval in recent days. With the banishment of Clippers owner Donald Sterling and the resignation of Mike D’Antoni, there are moving parts with both professional franchises.
When it comes to Clippers head coach Doc Rivers, who is in the midst of his first season in that position, he understandably felt some uncertainty about staying with the Clippers after the whole situation with Sterling. And while the stiff action taken against Sterling reportedly made Doc feel better about his future with the Clippers, it remains a possibility that he will have eyes for another job.
So would he consider staying in town to be the coach of the Los Angeles Lakers? Unlikely, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo!
LAC coach Doc Rivers has no thoughts about Lakers coach opening at this time, a source said. He has expressed uncertainty about LAC post DS.
