The Washington Wizards are hiring former Los Angeles Clippers assistant coach Howard Eisley to their staff, according to league sources.

Eisley had spent the last four seasons in Los Angeles, and was retained by new Clippers coach Doc Rivers last summer. The Clippers, who gave Rivers a huge contract extension a couple of weeks ago, added former Washington assistant Sam Cassell to their bench in July.

The Wizards had previously hired former Brooklyn Nets assistant coach Roy Rogers to their bench this summer.

Eisley played for eight NBA teams during his career, most notably for the Jazz as John Stockton's backup.
