The Celtics called a news conference on Friday with Coach Doc
Rivers and Danny Ainge, president of basketball operations, for
noon EDT, presumably about the proposed trade with the Clippers.
Then they postponed it to MOnday.
BEST OF MAXIM
The 2006 NBA Draft was somewhat of an exciting one for Danny Ainge because this would be the first time in three years that he'd have a lottery pick inside the top ten. After going 33-49 in 2005-06, the Boston Celtics had a 53% chance at getting the number one overall pick, a 66% chance to get the second overall pick, and a 70% chance of getting the third overall pick. Unfortunately...
Interesting stuff from (who else) Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski.
Shortly after firing George Karl, the Denver Nuggets offered the Boston Celtics a first-round draft pick as compensation to pry coach Doc Rivers out of his contract, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Nuggets CEO Josh Kroenke made a bid for Rivers approximately 10 days ago, informing general manager Danny Ainge...
Please God, let Ainge have a revelation before it's too late.
A couple of days ago, I wrote an open letter addressed to Danny Ainge, hoping that he'd realize he had the upper hand in this deal and would at least manage to offload a 5 mil contract onto the Clippers. Apparently that didn't go well. So here's my second attempt to explain why this proposed trade, i.e...
Doc Rivers and Danny Ainge are buds, pals, amigos. They like each other.
The two are arguably the closest a general manager and a coach have ever been to each other in the NBA.
With Rivers reportedly wanting out of Boston to coach the L.A. Clippers, that friendship could end up leaving the Celtics in horrible shape.
The friendship the two share is the only reason a coach with...
Fresh off of a season that saw the Boston Celtics finish with a record of 24-58, Danny Ainge once again found himself in the lottery. After receiving the 7th overall pick the previous year, the ping pong balls bounced better for Boston in the 2007 lottery. Ainge and Co. were awarded the 5th overall pick of the draft and it was that pick that would change the Celtics' fate for...
Well, according to Woj, Doc will only be coaching one team next season, if he decides to coach at all:
Doc Rivers and Danny Ainge plan to talk through weekend and have a resolution on the coach’s future with Celtics on Monday, sources tell Y!

Rivers informed the Clippers on Friday afternoon that he no longer had interest in L...
The Boston Herald is reporting that Celtics President of Basketball Operation Danny Ainge is the person that actually approached head coach Doc Rivers about his interest in the Clippers, and releasing him from his contract.
According to source with inside knowledge of the situation, Rivers confirmed his interest in the Clippers, and Ainge then let him know that preliminary conversations...
Danny Ainge first approached Doc Rivers to gauge his interest in the Los Angeles Clippers’ coaching vacancy, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
Rivers confirmed an interest in the Clippers, and it was then he learned Ainge had already had preliminary discussions with the Clippers on releasing him from his contract and making him available.
“At that point,...
At about 9:30 this morning, various Celtics media members announced the team had scheduled a noon press conference with Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers.
We were finally going to get some answers. Is Doc staying? Is he quitting and turning his back on the Boston fan base?
An hour later we were informed that the presser had been postponed until Monday.
The one last thing the Celtics have to save them from Danny Ainge's lackluster effort to trade Doc and KG is David Stern.
As we posted last night, the league doesn't allow two deals to be made that are contingent on each other. It's quite obvious that this is the case with the trade that is being discussed.
The Celtics and Clippers are talking about sending Kevin Garnett...
Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers have a joint press conference scheduled for 12 pm today:
Doc Rivers and Danny Ainge to meet the media today at noon. Plenty of questions to be answered.
— Chris Forsberg (@ESPNForsberg) June 21, 2013
Let's just say today's press conference will not be in the Celtics' organizational highlight reel going forward. What a mess.

The beat goes on. The Boston Celtics announced that they will be holding a press conference on Monday. Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers will be in attendance to discuss Rivers' future with the team. Here's the story from CSNNE: Celtics president of basketball operations and coach Doc Rivers will hold a joint press conference Monday at the team's facility in Waltham, Mass...
Back in the day the most dysfunctional NBA franchise that all other dysfunctional franchises measured themselves against was the Los Angeles Clippers. In recent years somehow they became a desirable location. This is all because they play in Los Angeles, the 2nd largest market in America and a warm weather climate, which NBA players more than any other professional athletes value...
