Doc Rivers Reflects on How Close Clippers Were to Signing KD

Doc Rivers speaks on how close Clippers were to getting KD

The Clippers were one of several teams disappointed by Kevin Durant’s decision to join the Golden State Warriors.

Although the Clippers missed out, head coach Doc Rivers claims they were closer than you may think.

We were willing to take the gamble if we felt we were in it. And we were in it. We were in the top-3 at the very end. But we had to make a couple calls to (Durant’s camp). We got two players to delay an hour (before making their decisions). We had two players on our team who could sign for more money but they were going to wait another hour to stay with us.

The second thing is we had to get this right. If we’re going to go after Durant, if we can get him, let’s stay in it. It’s worth it, even if we don’t get him. If we’re not going to get him, we have to make that decision. We have to do our job business wise.

Now, Doc Rivers and company must figure out how to slow down this machine.
