In 2013, the Los Angeles Clippers hired Doc Rivers as head coach and President of Basketball Operations after a successful stint with the Boston Celtics. Since then, the Clippers have gone 217-111 in the regular season, but only 18-22 in the postseason.

After trading Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets, the Clippers have made another change prior to the 2017-18 NBA season. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Rivers is leaving his front office role to focus on coaching:

LA Clippers owner Steve Ballmer is returning Doc Rivers to the primary duty of head coach, freeing him of front office responsibilities, the owner told ESPN on Friday.

With Rivers focusing on his head coaching position, Lawrence Frank has been promoted to general manager and will now oversee basketball operations moving forward:

Rivers, who held the title of president of basketball operations, will continue to have a strong voice in personnel and organizational matters and will partner with Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Lawrence Frank, Ballmer told ESPN. Frank will now oversee basketball operations, including the general manager.

For the Clippers, changes needed to be made this offseason after losing Paul. As the team’s President of Basketball Operations, Rivers has not elevated the franchise as they have failed to make it past the Western Conference semifinals during his tenure. Despite having a strong starting lineup through the years, Rivers did not improve the team’s depth and reportedly had an opportunity to acquire Carmelo Anthony for role players this past season.

After re-signing Blake Griffin and signing Danilo Gallinari this offseason, it remains to be seen if the Clippers will be competitive this upcoming season. With numerous stars and teams improving in the West, the duo of Griffin and DeAndre Jordan may not be able to reach at least 50 wins like they have in the past.
