Los Angeles Clippers hire Mike Woodson for Doc Rivers’ staff


The Los Angeles Clippers haven’t been at all involved in the rampant rumors surrounding LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony but that doesn’t mean they haven’t made strides when it comes to how well they’ve improved this offseason.

While teams are concerned with adding players to the roster — and the Clippers have no doubt done that — Los Angeles has improved their coaching depth which is just as if not more important that the talent on the roster.

According to Ken Berger from CBSSports.com, the Clippers have reached an agreement to hire Mike Woodson to Doc Rivers’ staff.

Woodson was run out of New York this year after Phil Jackson took over and decided to go in a new head coaching direction. There was some doubt as to where Woodson would land as there was early speculation that he could take a job at Indiana coaching the Hoosiers but that was quickly dismissed.

He ends up in the best possible situation he could now as the Clippers are on the rise and just one good season as an assistant under Doc Rivers could bring about head coaching attention once again for Woodson.
