Doc Rivers puts an end to any speculation of him and the Lakers coaching job by saying that he and Steve Ballmer have agreed earlier this season to a new extension that still needs paperwork to be finalized. But Rivers, who had an option out of his contract this summer, made it clear that he plans on remaining with the Clippers.

The Lions have signed Rams RFA RB Malcolm Brown to an offer sheet, per ESPN's Field Yates. The Rams have five days to match it, or they will lose Brown and will not receive compensation. Brown served a special teams standout and as Todd Gurley's trusted backup until he suffered a clavicle injury in Week 13 - against the Lions - and was placed on IR. Brown's injury played a significant role in the Rams' decision to sign CJ Anderson. The Rams have expressed interest in re-signing Anderson in free agency. Brown, who received an original round tender, also is expected to provide depth at running back.
