Davis owns an apartment in Los Angeles and is said to be keen on joining the Lakers.
However, the Clippers are also in the market for up to two superstar signings.
But it is unlikely they will move for Davis as Rivers is not be following his situation closely.
The clue came when Rivers was unaware that the power forward had handed in a trade request.
He found out just before the Clippers lost to Atlanta Hawks, despite the decision to leave being revealed much earlier in the day.
“Someone said, ‘Hey …,’ and I said, ‘Oh, interesting’,” Rivers said.
“That’s a tough situation for everybody, so it’ll all work out like it always does, and we know that.”
Rivers insisted that his team will not lose any focus on trying to secure a playoff place by Davis’ situation.
However, he suggested the Lakers may be affected by the trade speculation.
“I don’t know if it affects any of the teams that he’s not on, you know?” Rivers added.
“But everybody’s name is mentioned every day nowadays anyway, so I don’t know if it affects them as much as we think it does, but there are a few who it does.
“I don’t know who they are, but it will.”
Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard are two names heavily linked with a move to the Clippers this summer.
And Rivers believes his team is capable of challenging the Lakers in trade negotiations.
“When you hear free agents and they say, ‘LA,’ they’re just not meaning the other team,” he said earlier this season.
“Five, six years ago, you didn’t hear that, but now … when people say, ‘I want to go to L.A.,’ they mean both teams, and sometimes they mean only our team.”
