The Clippers aren’t lacking when it comes to having targets of criticism, and maybe the biggest, easiest target is the team’s president of basketball operations.See, Doc Rivers wasn’t just going to leave the Boston Celtics for any opportunity, and the chance to do more than coach – to run a competitive team in his vision – helped get him out West.But three years in, the results have been mixed at best.The Clippers haven’t gotten to the Western Conference Finals, let alone reaching the NBA Finals and hoisting gold at the end of the season. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Re-signed Austin Rivers (2 years, $6.4 million, player option in year 2): After a courageous performance in the Clippers’ Game 6 loss to Portland, no one is crying “nepotism” anymore about the team’s back-up point guard. Truth is, despite some offensive inconsistencies, Rivers was everything you could want from a bench player. He was prone to offensive outbursts while making regular contributions as a defender. Like Aldrich, he’ll likely opt out and get a raise this summer.Signed Luc Mbah a Moute (1 year, $947,000): The Clippers lucked into a starting small forward late in free agency, signing Mbah a Moute to a training camp deal after his contract with Sacramento fell apart under the guise of injury concerns. Mbah a Moute moved into the starting lineup and the defense instantly improved. His versatility on that end of the court was especially valuable with Blake Griffin injured for most of the season.The missesSigned Paul Pierce (3 years, $10.5 million, team option in year 3): There was no storybook season for Pierce as he returned to his hometown to reunite with his long-time coach. Pierce never got into rhythm, even when his minutes ticked up midway through the season. The Clippers didn’t spend a lot on Pierce, but with so much money tied up at the top of their roster, every penny matters, and Pierce didn’t matter enough.Signed Josh Smith (1 year, $947,000): It wasn’t much of a financial gamble, but adding Smith was a bet Rivers lost. From wall-penetrating arguments with coaches to ill-advised jumpers, Smith never gave the Clippers the boost they hoped.Traded for Lance Stephenson (acquired from Charlotte for Spencer Hawes and Matt Barnes): Another offseason gamble, Stephenson’s erratic on-court play didn’t mesh with either of the first or second units. The locker room enjoyed his presence, but ultimately, Stephenson’s contract was more valuable to the team than his performance.Signed Pablo Prigioni (1 year, $947,000): Prigioni had a couple of bright moments, and for a time he stablilized the second unit by throwing pocket pass after pocket pass to Aldrich. But, the veteran point guard struggled when the Clippers needed him most – in the playoffs after Chris Paul was injured.The in-betweensTraded for Jeff Green (acquired from Memphis for Lance Stephenson and a future first-round pick): The talent that’s tantalized NBA people for years was on display about half the time of Green’s short Clipper tenure – a plus athlete who is great in transition and a matchup problem in the half court. The Clippers, like everyone else, just didn’t see it all the time. Green, an unrestricted free agent this summer, helped in the playoffs, but unless they re-sign him and get useful minutes from him, was it worth the future first-round pick?Signed Wesley Johnson (2 years, $2.3 million, player option for year 2): Johnson wasn’t the shooter the Clippers hoped, but he became a better defender than they could’ve expected after an uneven start to the season. Johnson, like Green, wasn’t very consistent, but at the price, it doesn’t qualify as a miss.Drafted Branden Dawson (acquired from New Orleans for cash considerations): Dawson re-tooled his jumper and showed flashes of being an impact defender, but his trouble grasping the Clippers’ system and off-court problems (arrested on domestic violence charges that were later dropped) make his future with the team unclear. His contract for next season is non-guaranteed.Signed Jeff Ayres, Alex Stepheson to 10-day contracts: Ayres and Stepheson didn’t move the needle on the court, but both guys were pleasant to have around the locker room.As with most of Rivers’ tenure as a Clippers executive, this season was all over the map. He re-signed the team’s top target, he hit on a few bargain players and missed on some other key signings.With limited salary options provided the team keeps its core intact, he’ll have to be even better this summer, starting with the draft.If the hits don’t outnumber the misses, the Clippers could again find themselves done early next spring. That’s partly been due to bad luck. It’s partly been due to the players. It’s partly been due to coaching. And, it’s partly been due to the roster construction.As the Clippers enter a pivotal offseason in which they are faced with major decisions about their core and some key free agents, let’s look back at how Rivers the executive has fared since last summer.The hitsRe-signed DeAndre Jordan (4 years, $87.7 million, player option in year 4): Drama aside, the Clippers and Rivers accomplished their No. 1 goal last offseason, keeping Jordan in a Clipper uniform with a four-year deal for max money. While having a third max player creates salary cap challenges elsewhere, Jordan lived up to the contract, rebounding from a slow start to finish with a season that should end with him making the All-NBA team.Signed Cole Aldrich (2 years, $2.3 million, player option in year 2): The Clipper bench didn’t really hit its stride until Rivers benched Josh Smith, opening the door for Aldrich to contribute. A high-effort player, Aldrich notched career-bests in two advanced stats categories – PER and win shares – thanks to his strong play in the pick-and-roll offense and on the defensive end.
