I know, you can’t trade a head coach.  But you can complete a deal that would trade a player, and allow a coach out of his deal, if you include compensation for both.

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Celtics are in the midst of talks with the Clippers to send  Kevin Garnett and the right to hire Doc Rivers as head coach for DeAndre Jordan and two first-round picks.

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.

Clippers owner Donald Sterling reportedly is prepared to pay Rivers the $7 million annual salary he currently earns with the Celtics, sources said. Rivers has three years and $21 million left on his Boston deal.

If a deal is agreed upon, Rivers will likely speak to Chris Paul immediately on his willingness to re-signing with Los Angeles, sources said.

Rivers can’t be part of a player transaction, but throwing Eric Bledsoe in might get the Clippers Rivers.

We can assume Paul Pierce would join them after being bought out by the Celtics.

    Now is the time for the Clippers to make the necessary moves so they can compete for the Western Conference Chamionship. As far as the Lackers (Mis spelling intended) are concerned, the purple and yellow will never be what they once were.
