Report: Clippers Walk Away From Deal For KG, Doc Rivers
ESPN.com is reporting that according to sources, the trade talks between the Clippers and Celtics for Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett have totally fallen apart, with the Clippers walking away.
The teams have no plans to speak again, the sources said, and the Clippers are preparing to move on and hire a coach this week.
Reports suggest that the talks broke down Tuesday morning when the Clippers “refused to budge” on the Celtics latest proposal that asked for DeAndre Jordan, straight up for Garnett, and two first-round draft picks as compensation for allowing Doc Rivers out of the final three-years and $21 million of his contract.
Now the question is with Doc Rivers seemingly not interested in a return to Boston, will he return to broadcasting, sit at home for a year, or go back to Boston amid a ton of scrutiny regarding how he handled this whole situation?
