General manager Dave Wohl suggested Doc sign Austin before the start of last season, but Doc waivered. The Clippers instead signed Jordan Farmar, who they would later release before trading for Austin at the trade deadline.
“It was a gamble for me personally,” Doc Rivers said. “It was just a tough one for me. I was on the other side of not wanting to do it, and I’m glad I listened to people for a change. I wasn’t so stubborn. I give Dave Wohl credit, before the season started and we signed Jordan or anyone, he wanted that to happen and I didn’t hear any of that.
“In retrospect, it would have been nice to have him the whole year. It would have been better. That was a mistake. I probably should have.”
Austin showcased his potential in the Clippers' playoff loss to the
He opened enough eyes that his dad is hoping he takes a discount to stay with the organization, he even threatened to call his mother.
“He's young and he clearly helped us, I think we all have to agree with that,” Doc Rivers said. “And I think he loved it here. I even think he liked the coach at times.
“You know, it'll be interesting. I really want him back and I think it would be great to have him back, and I think he's a great fit for this team. But business is business and it'll be an interesting thing this summer.”

Coach Doc Rivers is confident that the Clippers will offer Jordan a max contract, saying, "Yeah, I think we can do that," per ESPN.
Jordan is seeking a maximum contract this offseason, and coach Doc Rivers expressed the team will actively seek to bring him back.
"We don’t need to go and get a max player, except for the one we have," Rivers said. "... DJ loves it here. We know that, but you can’t take that for granted. There’s going to be a lot of teams (that want him), and if they’re not, there are a lot of dumb teams out there. There’s going to be a lot of teams coming after him that have money."
Jordan averaged 11.5 points, 15 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game this season.
The Clippers, however, would prefer to sign the free agent who averaged 11.7 points, 15.0 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game this season. A report from USA Today claims Jordan wants to leave so he will no longer be a third fiddle behind Blake Griffin and Chris Paul. But Doc Rivers contradicts it.
"You can't take anything for granted, but DJ loves being a Clipper," he said. "DJ loves being here. We have an amazing relationship."
The Clippers blew a huge lead in Game 6 and fell in Game 7 to Houston to be eliminated from the playoffs.
