A couple days ago now, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith threw this out there.
He said that he was hearing in "NBA circles" (pictured above) that the Celtics and Clippers were talking about swapping DeAndre Jordan, Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler for Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Doc Rivers.
Obviously, that will never happen. The Celtics probably aren't going to be trading their coach, and the Clippers wouldn't give up so many young assets for some players who could be retiring soon.
Rightfully so, Smith started taking a ton of heat the last couple of days. Especially in Boston. We went into a little bit in our CelticsLife Requiem show last night.
Smith appeared on Boston sports radio station WEEI this morning to defend his report and maybe regain some credibility.
Instead he seems to have dug himself into a bigger hole.
