With buyouts currently in the fold, Clippers coach Doc Rivers on Sunday at practice was asked if he’s interested in adding a player.

“We’re always interested, if it’s the right guy,” he said…

Asked what type of player he’d like to sign – a big, a guard – Rivers was non-committal.

“I don’t even know right now, honestly,” he said. “I like our team. If we went into the playoffs with what we have, I’m very happy.”

Reserve guard Austin Rivers (fractured left hand) told reporters he expects to be back Wednesday when the Clippers host Oklahoma City. But the return of power forward Blake Griffin (fractured right hand) remains up in the air.

Rivers said he didn’t know if he’ll sign forward Alex Stepheson to a second 10-day contract. He signed his first Feb. 20.
