This past Monday, the news dropped that longtime Clippers head coach Doc Rivers is out as coach following a very disappointing series loss to the Nuggets where they blew a 3-1 lead against the Nuggets.
Now that Doc Rivers is out as head coach, NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Tyronn Lue and Jeff Van Gundy were seen as good candidates to take over in Los Angeles, but there could be another name that many fans have connected back to the Clippers.
Once the season ended for the San Antonio Spurs, there have been rumors that Gregg Popovich could be leaving the team to look for a different challenge and a change in scenery. Although they didn't end on good terms and ended with Popovich shipping off Kawhi to Toronto, Kawhi and Pop have history together and they knew how to be successful together.
