Doc Rivers will remain as the Clippers head coach, but will no longer serve as president of basketball operations, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Rivers had served as president and coach since 2013. Lawrence Frank will now oversee basketball operations, including the general manager. Wojnarowski reports that both Frank and Rivers will report directly to owner Steve Ballmer and that both men "enjoy a strong personal and professional relationship, which has allowed for them to cement a shared vision on the franchise's future."

Jerry West was officially introduced as a consultant for the Clippers on Monday.

West is the basketball genius responsible for pairing Kobe Bryant with Shaquille O'Neal during his days as the Lakers' GM, and as a consultant for the Warriors, his pitch to Kevin Durant was crucial in helping lure him away from OKC. Now West will try to work his magic with the Clippers in what he is calling "the last adventure" of his life.

The Clippers are reportedly "closing in on" an agreement to build a new home arena in Inglewood, in the southwest of L.A. County.

The Clippers have a long-term lease with the Staples Center, and Vincent Bonsignore of the O.C. Register writes that "if all goes according to plan, [the Clippers] could be looking at an opening in time for 2022/23 season." Nothing is imminent, obviously, but it's an interesting twist for the Clippers franchise, which has long shared the Staples Center with the Lakers. Clippers owner Steve Ballmer would reportedly pay for all construction costs.

The Clippers will reportedly try and bring in Jerry West to serve in an advisory role to the franchise this offseason.

West has been with the Warriors organization since 2011, and he's been absolutely paramount in turning the franchise around from a laughing stock to perennial title contender. The Clippers won't be the only team looking to try and woo West away from the Warriors when his contract expires in July, but Dubs' owners Joe Lacob has made it clear that keeping West on the staff will be a priority for the team this offseason.

Doc Rivers said the Clippers will prioritize players with some length in free agency.

"We need more length and two-way players," Rivers said. "Again, that's easy to say. Little harder to do with the way our contracts are. We may continue to do what we've done or we may decide to change our contracts and have more flexibility." With Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Luc Mbah a Moute, J.J. Redick, Marreese Speights, Raymond Felton and Alan Anderson all hitting the open market this summer, the Clippers could look a lot different in 2017-18. However, if they are able to re-sign CP3 and Griffin to max deals, it's not going to be easy to bring in the quality role players that Doc desires with very little financial flexibility.

The Clippers are "actively exploring" sites for a new arena, according to ESPN's Kevin Arnovitz.

The lease with the Staples Center ends in 2024, so there is no rush here. According to the report, the Clippers are looking to move west -- the Staples Center is about 14 miles east of the Pacific Ocean. The Los Angeles Rams of the NFL building a stadium is likely a factor here, as well. Additionally, Dan Woike of the Orange County Register adds the Clippers locker room is being renovated this summer.

The Clippers are finalizing a deal with John Welch as an assistant coach.

Several teams have been after him with his NBA coaching experience dating back to 2002. Welch been an assistant with the Kings and coached their Summer League team last year. He figures to be one of the main assistants on coach Doc Rivers' bench.

Coach Doc Rivers said he will change his starting lineup for Game 6 on Friday.

It could be Jeff Green or Wes Johnson coming in for Austin Rivers or Jamal Crawford. The lineup change shouldn't really affect the minutes, so DFS players shouldn't be making any major tweaks.

Coach Doc Rivers said he may rest a couple of starters against the Lakers on Wednesday.

The Clippers are basically locked into their No. 4 seed and play a back-to-back against the Lakers on Tuesday and Wednesday. If multiple starters are rested, Austin Rivers, Jamal Crawford and Cole Aldrich could benefit.

The Clippers are not expected to make a trade.

There was some buzz earlier this month, but the team is fully expected to stand pat here. Blake Griffin (hand) should be back some time in March, but will also have to sit out four games once he's healthy after being suspended for punching his trainer.

Doc Rivers praised his bench for their recent improved performance.

The Clippers needed a boost when the team learned Blake Griffin (hand) would be out for longer than expected, and the bench is providing it. "Really our bench has been better than fantastic," Rivers said. "They’re actually changing games, and it’s with their energy. Early on, I think they thought it was going to be with their offense and now they realize it’s with their hands and their defense and the deflections. They did it again with all the deflections and the fast breaks."

Doc Rivers said that nearly losing DeAndre Jordan was a wake-up call for him.

"Losing [Jordan] would've always gnawed at me," Rivers said. "But it wouldn't have stopped me. I would've said, 'F--- that, we're going to figure out a way to get this right.' But it also triggered something else for me. It might have been my front-office wake-up call. I was not a pleasant guy to me, or my staff, after I thought we lost him – and even after we got him back. We had a lot of 'come-to-Jesus' meetings. I told them, and told myself: 'We've got to get f------ better."

Coach Doc Rivers, owner Steve Ballmer and president Gillian Zucker met with DeAndre Jordan.

There were no current players involved here. Rivers likely addressed the basketball side of the meeting with Ballmer and Zucker, the former president of business operations before the promotion, handling the non-basketball stuff. It'll come down to the Clippers or Mavs here. The loser on this deal will be in a bad spot.

Doc Rivers implied during a recent interview that former owner Donald Sterling killed some good trades that the Clippers had lined up during his first year in the front office.

"This is really only my third year but you can make a case this is our second year if you know what I’m saying," said Rivers. "If I someday wrote a book and told you a couple of the trades we had in the first year that we didn’t do because of other reasons, you would fall off your chair." Luckily for Rivers, the Clippers fan base, and the NBA in general, Sterling will never be a part of any NBA decision making process ever again.
