LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Neal Olshey and the Los Angeles Clippers have reached an agreement in principle to bring him back as the team's general manager.
No terms were announced Friday night.
In his second season in charge, Olshey oversaw a major retooling of the roster that included signing All-Star Chris Paul in December in the biggest trade in franchise history. In the same six-day span, Olshey signed All-Stars Caron Butler and Chauncey Billups, and re-signed DeAndre Jordan.
The Clippers finished with a 40-26 record and reached the second round of the playoffs.
Earlier in the week, the Clippers exercised their option on coach Vinny Del Negro, bringing him back for a third season.
Olshey has been with the Clippers for nine years, including stints as director of player development, assistant coach, director of player personnel, and assistant GM.
