The Clippers and Doc Rivers agreed to a contract extension.

Rivers had one year left on his deal, and there was some buzz that Rivers could have hit the market this summer. That obviously won't be the case anymore, but now Rivers will have a new way to approach his job with the Clippers expected to rebuild with their two lottery picks.

Doc Rivers is nearing an agreement for a multi-year extension with the Clippers.

While the Clippers failed to reach the postseason, owner Steve Ballmer believes that Rivers did an "amazing" job this season with the amount of injuries they had. Rivers said last week in an interview that he loves where the organization is at right now, so it sounds like he's excited to be part of their rebuilding process -- that's a bit ironic because one of the reasons he left Boston was that he didn't want to rebuild at the time. With DeAndre Jordan expected to opt out, the Clippers will have lots of cap space and could be very active on the free agent market.

Michael Winger has reached an agreement in principle to become the Clippers' new GM.

Winger spent the past seven years learning under the tutelage of Sam Presti in OKC, and he's highly respected around the league, so the Clippers got a good one here. Winger will report directly to the president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank, and Doc Rivers will now be able to devote all his time to coaching in Los Angeles.

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.
