Boston Celtics & Los Angeles Clippers Possibly Discussing Blockbuster Trade
 

 
image

Following early playoff exits for both teams, reports are now surfacing that the Los Angeles Clippers and Boston Celtics may be discussing a blockbuster deal.

In the rumored trade, which can be found here, the Celtics would receive Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Caron Butler and Eric Bledsoe, with the Clippers getting Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and even head coach Doc Rivers in return.

It's hard to take a whole lot of stock in this rumor, but it's certainly interesting to think about.

For the Clippers, the motivation here would have to be to keep Chris Paul. Paul is a free agent this summer, and much has been made of whether or not he would want to stay if Vinny Del Negro is the head coach. Many think Paul does not want to play for Del Negro and would love to play for someone like Doc Rivers. While Kevin Garnett can certainly still play, the Clippers would have to have huge concerns about trading away their starting power forward and center. KG could give them good production for the next year or so, but giving up a cornerstone in Blake Griffin would be hard to do.

If you're the Celtics, you would have to pull the trigger on this. What better way is there to start over than grabbing a young superstar in Blake Griffin, as well as additional pieces like DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe? With Bledsoe on the roster, the Celtics would also be given flexibility to shop around Rajon Rondo for additional pieces. Imagine starting new with Griffin, Jordan, Bledsoe, and whatever they would get in return for Rondo?

All of this being said, it's tough to imagine that the Clippers would be willing to part with so many young pieces just to get aging veterans and a better coach. However, you have to wonder how much Chris Paul will weigh coaching in his decision. If he has told the organization that he will stay with a coach like Doc Rivers, everything changes.

Never heard of a coach goin in a trade hah thats nutty. Without that, thats not a bad trade although I would prefer both KG and Peirce retire in green. But Pierce especially looked sluggish as fu*k in these playoffs, might be time.

I coulda swore that's happened before? Didn't the Raiders trade Gruden to Tampa or something like that? I'm almost positive this has happened in soccer a couple times .... Also this is all rumor there hasn't been any actual discussion between the teams about this, I ain't giving up a 23 year old all star and a potential all star for old a.ss Pierce and Garnette that's ridiculous, I dnt care if Doc Rivers is included

yeah, Garnett could help them a lot next year, but overall yeah true. I'm perfectly fine with Rondo-Greene-Sully going forward and letting the old Gs retire with dignity, and also keeping one of the best coaches in the game... Clippers just got knocked out in the first round cause neither Blake nor Jordan has an offensive game...

it's almost too crazy too believe. but yahoo does have a good track record on nba reporting. and the clippers and celtics have had their share of head scratching moves in the past. that would be crazy if doc was actually traded. what's even crazier is that he's the most valuable piece in the trade too

i actually think the clippers would get the better end of this deal if this trade went through. especially if doc signs long term. it's still a dumb trade to make because they can make other trades for the pieces they are shopping.

For the the Clippers it would be the ultimate "win right now" move but it's still a ridiculous trade for the Clippers to take; if this is true if I'm the Celtica I'd do this trade in a heartbeat; I'm sure they'd have no problem finding a serviceable coach with a: Rondo-Bledsoe-Green-Griffin-Jordan line up; with Sully, Bass, Bradley, Terry coming off the bench that's a hell of a squad
