According to Brad Turner of the L.A. Times, Golden State Warriors advisor Jerry West is “very intrigued” by the L.A. Clippers:

The Clippers’ rumored interest in West was leaked last night in a Marc Stein report, followed by an update today that Doc Rivers and Steve Ballmer had already spoken with West regarding a position in the Clippers’ organization.

In a Sports Illustrated piece released today, West hinted at a distaste with the Warriors’ lack of competition in the NBA, perhaps indicating a desire to seek a “new challenge,” as he did in 2002 when he left the Los Angeles Lakers for the Memphis Grizzlies.
