Clippers relieve Doc Rivers of his GM duties

Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers looks on during the second half in Game 6 of an NBA basketball first-round playoff series against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City. Doc Rivers is losing his dual roles

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Friday that Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers will be removed from his role as president of basketball operations.

Ballmer said Lawrence Frank, the team's executive vice president, will assume responsibility for basketball operations. Frank and Rivers have a strong relationship and they worked together to make hires and changes in the front office structure. "That is what we prioritise, and that is what Doc will focus on", Ballmer said in a release. "He is to key integrating our new players with our returning players and taking us to new heights on the court". There needs to be a healthy discussion and debate with two strong, independent minded people.

Rivers will focus on coaching the team but will still have a say in the day-to-day particulars of the roster and on players the team would like to acquire or let go. Doc put Lawrence in charge of the non-coaching aspects of the front office a year ago, and he's done a fantastic job. He gets recruiting, talent development and identification, salary cap strategy - he gets it all.

The Clippers now will be operating without Chris Paul, who was traded to the Houston Rockets in June after the All-Star point guard said he planned to leave the franchise in free agency.

Frank has had previous National Basketball Association head coaching jobs in New Jersey and Detroit.

Since then, the Clippers have gone 217-111 in the regular season and 18-22 in the postseason. Rivers was hired as president and coach in 2013 and won a title in 2008 with the Celtics.
