03:01 PM ET 06.25 | After some early morning hangups in contract talks, it looks like Doc Rivers and the Los Angeles Clippers will be finalizing contract negotiations with the intention of introducing Rivers as the new head coach of the Clippers on Wednesday. According to the Boston Herald, both the Clippers and Doc Rivers will be officially united with in the next 24 hours. Mark Murphy points out that Doc Rivers was within his rights to be cautious about entering into business with Clippers owner Donald Sterling. Rivers was traded as a player by Sterling, and the head coach came out years later as saying it was not the best time in his life and that had to do with the situation and atmosphere created by Sterling. This also sheds light on why Chris Paul might have been so upset with Sterling this offseason and explains why Sterling shoveled blame elsewhere when it came to firing Vinny Del Negro.
