Found June 15, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Not so fast, DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe. What a crazy Saturday this has been. Doc Rivers was apparently on the table in a trade that would have also shipped KG and Pierce to LA.

Now, after Doc tried to force his way out of Boston, taking KG and Pierce with him, it seems like LA is moving on without him and will set their sites elsewhere. This could change in an instant, but for now, Doc's got some explaining to do.
