Clippers Rumors: Austin Rivers Re-Sign For Two-Year $6.4 Million Deal With Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers, in their mission for another title-chase, retained GM coach Doc Rivers’ son Austin Rivers for two more seasons. The deal is worth $6.4 million, equivalent to his 2015-16 option with an extra year added, according to League sources. The second year of the deal is a player-option. The Pelicans declined such fourth year option last season.

Doc Rivers had a wonderful post-season in the recently concluded year where he registered a series win over defending champions San Antonio Spurs. He is credited for making the most out of an “awful” reserve bench. In the semifinals against the Houston Rockets, the Clippers blew a 3-1 lead.

Austin Rivers has taken the challenge of a deal which is less than the annual remuneration of $4 million to be with the Clippers.

Rivers, who turns 23 on August 1, averaged 7.1 points and 1.7 assists in 41 games for the Clippers. The Clippers signed him in mid-season trade from the Boston Celtics.
