Found June 17, 2013 on Red's Army:
Yet another Woj bomb: The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers are discussing possible compromises to including guard Eric Bledsoe into the Kevin Garnett-Doc Rivers deal with hopes of completing an agreement on Monday, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. This is it, folks.  This is the beginning of the end because The prospects of bringing Rivers back to the Celtics have become less appealing for Boston, who understand, as one league executive said, “There’s no putting the genie back in the bottle. You can’t pretend this didn’t happen and just go back to work.” That kind of follows what I said this morning. Of course, it could all fall apart.  But I’m preparing for Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett to become Clippers soon.  And that means Paul Pierce will likely be gone too. Damn.
