LAS VEGAS – With all that’s transpired for his old man in the past month, Austin Rivers has been engulfed with issues of his own. Like the Celtics faithful and Clippers fans, the younger Rivers was closely monitoring the month-long ordeal involving Doc Rivers, Danny Ainge, and the Clippers.
The deal is done now. Doc is coaching the Clippers and was checking out his summer league team before bolting to New York while the Celtics have moved on with Brad Stevens and a revamped roster. As for Austin, things are pretty much the same personally; he remains with the New Orleans Pelicans but is here in Las Vegas with an agenda.
