Celtics & Clippers in talks to make KG trade happen

.I’m just about as sick of this as everyone else, but it’s getting serious now. Adrian Wojnarowski reports:

The Boston Celtics are deep in discussions with the Los Angeles Clippers on a blockbuster deal to send coach Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett to Los Angeles, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

The final hurdle of a deal centers on the Clippers’ willingness to include guard Eric Bledsoe into a trade package with Boston, sources said.

Boston and Los Angeles are discussing a package that will send DeAndre Jordan and two first-round picks to the Celtics for Garnett and the right to hire Rivers as coach, sources said.

Garnett will waive his no-trade clause to go to the Clippers, where he’ll be reunited with Rivers. Celtics assistant Ty Lue also will likely join them in Los Angeles, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Things have moved very quickly in the last 24 hours and I’m sure both sides would like to get this finished, one way or the other, asap. Do stay-tuned..

    Well, it’s no longer rumors when Woj reports it.

    Is sad how quick we say good bye to guys that broght us the first real Celtic team in twenty years. KG was the definition of the word Boston Celtic.
    Obviously if that deal gets done DA won’t be finished. Will he get rid of PP, will he flip Bledsoe as part of a sign and trade for Josh Smith? Rondo , Green, Smith and Jordan is a good step. Still not sold on Bradley as the starting undersized two guard.
    I just pray Vinny Del isn’t the coach.

      Where is Celtic Pride? Trading KG and PP for what? ugh Can we get rid of Ainge

  • KGino

    Got a feeling i’m going to be a huge clips fan next season… except doc

    • Eddie Allen Powe

      LOL same here! But the thought of Matt Barnes, Lamar Odom, and Ronnie Turiaf on the same side as KG makes me sick

    I wanna throw up sending Doc and KG to the Clippers.

    What happened to “We’re Celtics for life” “Celtic pride” ?? LA gets everything!! (I even live here now and feel that way)

    I honestly would rather have Doc than any star player out there. Maybe that’s just me, but I feel like players come and go… a couch like him is one in a million.

    This is my worst nightmare.

    I was ready to denounce Doc if he left for the Clippers- but it seems to me from everything that I’m reading that what he really wants is PP/KG, and I don’t think that’s unreasonable. These guys should be Celtics until they retire. I think if Danny committed to PP/KG, Doc is back in the fold with no problem. The question is, is Danny willing to absolutely blow the whole thing up and lose the coach. I, for one, hope the answer to that question is NO. It just seems absurd, disrespectful, counterproductive and egomaniacal. I’m ready to say good bye to Ainge.
