SI.com: Doc Rivers said he tried real hard to get you to L.A.. How close were you to being a Clipper? Pierce: "I thought a lot about L.A.. My wife wanted to stay there and put the kids in school. It would have been an easier transition for me being with Doc, being at home. I think I missed out on that opportunity by waiting to see what Brooklyn was going to do. When they eventually said they weren’t going to make any moves, I missed that boat. That kind of upset me." Sports Illustrated

Gillian Zucker, once named one of the five most powerful women in motorsports, is now one of the most powerful women in the NBA. Zucker was named Thursday at the Clippers' president of business operations, replacing Andy Roeser, who left after the team was sold last summer.

During the Donald Sterling situation, did you ever empathize with him? Did you ever think to yourself, "I've been in the news more than once for something I've said?" Mark Cuban: Did I empathize with him? Yes. Of course I did. This is an elderly man who grew up in a generation that is night-and-day in how it understood race and culture. And yes, I empathized with him because this was a conversation that took place in his kitchen and he had a right to expect privacy in his home. But none of that excused him from the rules of the NBA.

Then, he got to the absurd notion that his team committed one measly foul in the first half, after which they trailed 65-42. “I’ve never been in a game where a team scores 65 points and we have one foul,” Rivers said. “That, to the core, bothers me to no end. I mean, I have never seen that before. And I think the foul was late and it was a mistake; it probably wasn’t a foul. So for me, I’m doing something wrong because that’s as soft as you can probably get in a game. One foul at halftime? Are you (expletive) kidding me? I mean, that’s as bad as I’ve seen.” Los Angeles Daily News

Rivers said reserve forward Glen Davis wasn't ready to return from the strained right groin that has sidelined him since the middle of last month. Davis could make his season debut Saturday against Portland, Rivers said. Los Angeles Times
