Clippers reach deal to hire Rivers, sources say

Doc Rivers and the Los Angeles Clippers have agreed in principle to a deal that would make Rivers the new Clippers’ coach, league sources told the Globe Sunday.

In exchange, the Celtics would receive an unprotected 2015 first-round draft pick, the sources said. Rivers’s contract with the Clippers would be for three years at $21 million, the sources added, which is what he had left on the five-year extension he signed in Boston.
