Clippers owner Steve Ballmer got Doc Rivers to sign an extension, keeping him as the head coach through the 2019 season.

Rivers has done a good job with the Clippers during his tenure. The problem wasn't him. The problem was ownership. With that chance made, things should move forward pretty smoothly for the 'other' team in Los Angeles.

Clippers to use stretch provision to waive Carlos Delfino and create cap room.

For those not familiar with the "stretch provision," it means that, when a team waives a player, it can spread the remaining guaranteed salary (and its accompanying cap hit) over twice the remaining length of the contract, plus one year. The Clippers would still pay Delfino, but just over a little more time than they would normally have to. It's another one of those sneaky provisions like the amnesty clause.

Bucks are sending Carlos Delfino and Miroslav Raduljica to the Clippers for Jared Dudley and a future 1st-round pick.

The Clips literally had no quality small forward behind Matt Barnes, so trading for Delfino gives them better depth at that position. Don't worry about Raduljica because he could be cut or be a cheerleader at the end of the bench. The Bucks didn't need Delfino and get a future first round pick in the deal.

Blake Griffin says his back injury is not serious.

After being advised by doctors, Griffin withdrew from Team USA training camp last week due to a small fracture in his back. Despite the injury, Griffin has been able to practice along side DeAndre Jordan this summer, so the injury should not be a concern moving forward for the Clippers star power forward.

Update: Clippers PF Blake Griffin withdrew last week from Team USA training camp to give a small fracture in his back more time to heal before the start of the next NBA season.

Smart move, Blake. It's not Team USA paying you your contract. Best to stay right for the NBA season and pass on the civic pride and international representation.

Judge has ruled against Donald Sterling, which clears way for the Clippers to be sold to Steve Ballmer for $2B.

Finally! This whole situation can come to end and we no longer have to hear anything about what Donald Sterling does.The NBA doesn't have to worry about a possibility of players holding out or boycotting games because the Sterling mess is now over. On another note: The fact the Clippers sold for $2 billion is preposterous because that was more than double what they worth and no NBA team is worth that much money.

Chris Paul told ESPN that sitting out is a real possibility if Donald Sterling remains the owner at start of season.

This is a tough situation to evaluate. On the surface, I appreciate that Paul would stick to his principles, but at the end of the day, it's hard to believe that will be the case. If Sterling is still the owner when the season begins, it will be intriguing to see how this issue is resolved. Hopefully Sterling will just exit as he should and not cause much controversy as he heads out the door.

The Los Angeles Clippers have issued a statement from Blake Griffin that he is pulling out of Team USA duties this summer.

Griffin is one of the most dedicated players in the league, and the fact that the Clippers have yet to make a significant run in the playoffs has really gotten the attention of the team's power forward. With Team USA duties out of the way he can now give 100 percent to his improvement as he matures into a star in the league.

Clippers interim CEO testifies coach Doc Rivers has said he will quit if Donald Sterling remains owner. 

I don't blame Rivers for his stance on this terrible situation. The fact there is still a question that Sterling will remain the owner of the Clippers is absurd. The Clippers franchise and the NBA as a whole will be a lot better off once this situation gets settled and Sterling no longer owns the team.

Glen Davis will return to Clippers on 1-year, veteran minimum deal of $1.2 million, per source.

Davis was a late addition for the Clippers last season, serving as a solid backup big man behind Blake Griffin. Although he averaged only 13.4 minutes, his role would likely be expanded with the team going through an influx in the team's frontcourt, but not enough to warrant fantasy consideration in the early going.
