Doc Rivers Rumors

Rivers is one of several coaches with Knicks ties who could re-surface this summer. Mark Jackson would be in play for the Knicks job and is said to be interested in coaching again in the right situation. The same is true of Jeff Van Gundy, who is satisfying his coaching Jones by being in charge of the U.S. national team in qualification rounds.
Austin Rivers knows what you think about him. Spoiled. Cocky. Entitled coach’s kid. Bust. “People can say whatever they want about me and my father [LA Clippers coach Doc Rivers],” the guard told ESPN during a lengthy interview Wednesday night. “I get it. I can even put my ego aside and understand why people don’t like the situation. When I was growing up and I’d see the coach’s son, you’d be like, ‘He sucks. He’s only on the team because of his dad.’ So I get it.”

He might even agree, to an extent, with those who see him that way. “People are like, ‘Well, his dad [Doc Rivers] gave him his chance.’ Is that true or not? I don’t know. It might be,” Austin Rivers said. “[But] could it be that my pops knew how good I could be because he’s my pops? “He told me on the phone [when the Clippers traded for him in 2015], ‘If it doesn’t work out, we’ll just cut ways at the end of the year, keep it clean, and you can go on and try to figure it out.'”
