Talks Heating Up Between Clippers and Celtics
The original report of a trade between the Clippers and Celtics that featured DeAndre Jordan, Eric Bledsoe, Caron Butler, and a first round pick for head coach, Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett, and the expiring contracts of either Courtney Lee or Jason Terry have now changed. The Clippers were not willing to go through with this deal because they wanted to hold on to back-up point guard Eric Bledsoe. However, the latest report is that the Boston Celtics are now willing to do the trade without Bledsoe, in order to make this deal happen.
The Clippers need Bledsoe, just in case Chris Paul decides to leave this summer to join Dwight Howard somewhere. But now it looks like they may be able to keep both players, since a trade for a coach like Doc Rivers and the veteran sass of a Kevin Garnett are likely to convince Paul to stay.
