Austin Rivers is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Born on August 1, 1992, in Santa Monica, California to parents Doc and Kristen Rivers, Austin was a star from a young age. At Winter Park High School in Florida he captured two state championships as well as being named “Mr. Basketball” by USA Today in 2011.

He then went on to play one season at Duke University where he averaged 15.5 points per game and 3 assists per game while shooting 39% from three-point range before deciding to enter the 2012 NBA Draft. He was selected 10th overall by the New Orleans Pelicans and became only the second father-son duo after Rick Barry and Brent Barry to each be chosen in the first round of an NBA draft. After two seasons with New Orleans, which included averages of over 6 points per game his rookie season followed by nearly 8 points per contest his second year — both coming off of limited playing time — Austin was traded prior to his third season to join his father Doc’s team at that time: The Los Angeles Clippers; it would mark their first ever shared NBA experience together despite having long been coached by each other since high school days.

After two mostly nondescript years with LA., Austin found new life when he joined the Washington Wizards for part of 2017-2018 season, averaging 14points per game over 24 appearances with DC.. He then spent some time bouncing around between various teams such as Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns before joining Houston Rockets during 2019-2020 campaign where he saw increased minutes off bench posting career bests across board – 11ppg & 2apg -while helping lead them all way back into contention that year until shutdown due Covid pandemic crisis occurred midseason curtailing remainder regular schedule playoffs that ultimately shut out Rockets chances qualifying postseason berths; however they got redemption next 2020–2021 term making up ground amidst shortest offseason history capturing 5th seed playoff spot once again displaying same tenacity spirit drove him success recent campaigns nonetheless bringing veteran savvy knowledge process even though younger than most players roster (28yrs old) thereby becoming key contributor squad looking ahead next few yeas least based current trends given what seen thus far throughout course career so far unto this point certain hopeful continue ascendancy order achieve successes chasing dreams garnered earlier stages still developing journey will undoubtedly fascinating watch moving forward no matter makes come whatever capacity may arrive form hereon end just like has done everywhere along path up present day .
