The Los Angeles Clippers have restructured their front office, with Doc Rivers' title changing from senior vice president of basketball operations to president, the team announced on Monday.

Kevin Eastman, Rivers' longtime assistant coach, has been promoted to vice president. He has never been in a front-office role before. With assistants Alvin Gentry and Tyronn Lue both talking to other teams, the coaching staff could look quite different next season.

In addition, Dave Wohl, formerly the Clippers' director of scouting, is now the general manager. Gary Sacks, who was the executive vice president of player personnel, has been named assistant general manager.
