Doc Rivers has decided to hire Woodson to be a coach on his staff with the Clippers, CBS Sports’ Ken Berger reports.
The LA Times’ Brad Turner confirms the report and says Rivers is also talking with former Milwaukee Bucks coach Larry Drew about joining his staff. Berger mentions that Rivers is also pursuing Lawrence Frank and Sam Cassell to join his staff.
Rivers lost top assistant Alvin Gentry to the Warriors. Gentry was head coach of the Suns when Steve Kerr was the team’s GM, so it makes sense that he wanted to reunite with Kerr.
