With that as the backdrop, subtle buzz existed that Rivers could at least conceivably jump from the Clippers to the Los Angeles Lakers when/if an opening was created to take the helm of LeBron's crew this summer. But the Clippers coach said he and Ballmer already have verbally agreed to forgo the option and work out a longer extension, which is pending the completion of paperwork.

When asked about the rumors of a possible move to the LA Clippers' cross-town rivals in his pre-game media availability, Doc Rivers stated that the unsubstantiated rumors that had been floating around about him are completely false.

Rivers' denial of any interest in coaching the Lakers comes on the heels of reports Monday by Stephen A. Smith and Peter Vecsey that Rivers is liked by Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson and would be interested in the Lakers challenge.

That means its valuation could be somewhere between $21 billion and $23 billion, according to The Wall Street Journal . The shares are expected to trade on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the ticker symbol "LYFT".

The coach said earlier this year he and Ballmer mutually agreed to remove the opt-out and make it an extension. We've long decided on that and just chosen not to say anything about it.

"We just thought we'd put that to bed", Ballmer said. I have great respect for him. "I'm here. My job is not done". I think we are accomplishing that part, but not the first part yet. That's my goal. We don't need to go on this anymore.

However, Rivers said that's being replaced with a long-term deal. So does the Clippers' 42-30 record after a 115-109 victory over IN on Tuesday night. This coach chose to stay right where he's at and I'm very happy about it.
