The official completion of the deal that will send Doc Rivers to the Los Angeles Clippers is being delayed because Rivers and his representatives are still reviewing the wording in the coach's new contract, league sources told ESPNBoston.com's Jackie MacMullan.

Rivers and his representatives also are recommending changes in the language of the three-year, $21 million deal, according to league sources.

The NBA has not approved the deal yet, but the league also is not holding up the completion of the transaction, a league source told MacMullan. ESPN reported earlier Monday that the league already had approved the deal.

[Note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported the status of the NBA's approval of Doc Rivers' new contract with the Los Angeles Clippers. As of Monday night, the NBA had not approved the deal.]
