The Boston Celtics and Doc Rivers do not believe a deal will be reached with the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Clippers proposed sending a future second round pick for the rights to Rivers, but the Celtics are holding out for a first round pick.
Rivers is flying back to Orlando with discussions apparently over. Rivers will no longer pursue the opportunity to coach the Clippers, according...
It isn’t just that he [Doc] doesn’t want to be a part of a rebuilding situation; it is because he has an intense dislike for point guard Rajon Rondo. A source close to the Celtics tells Chris Sheridan of SheridanHoops.com that Rondo dropped an F-bomb on Rivers in the locker room during a team meeting, and Rivers went after Rondo and tried to fight him...
Chris Sheridan is reporting this bombshell (courtesy NESN):
One piece of information that has not come out during the alive/dead/alive/dead Celtics-Clippers trade talks is Rivers’ motivation in wanting to leave the Celtics.
It isn’t just that he doesn’t want to be a part of a rebuilding situation; it is because he has an intense dislike for point guard Rajon Rondo.
The Los Angeles Clippers are not offering a first round pick to the Boston Celtics for the rights to hire Doc Rivers as head coach.
The Clippers want to move the Garnett talks to the sideline for now, according to sources.
Discussions between the two teams are not going anywhere until the Clippers change their position on the draft pick compensation.
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,...
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.

After superstar Chris Paul injected his influence...
After the Los Angeles Clippers fired Vinny Del Negro, they immediately began searching for his replacement. The “other” team in Los Angeles has too many good pieces to be swept in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. In Boston, Doc Rivers found himself in a predicament of his own. Celtics GM Danny Ainge is threatening to press the reset button on the aging core of his team. Paul...
When news broke that Chris Paul was the one who told the Clippers to reengage the Boston Celtics in trade talks for their head coach Doc Rivers, it was clear that CP3 truly wanted Doc to be roaming the sidelines in the Staples Center. So naturally now that the trade is off, Paul isn’t exactly [...]
The Los Angeles Clippers and Boston Celtics have begun discussions on a new deal that would satisfy the NBA's concerns about the structure. NBA rules do not allow coaches to be traded or have side deal contingencies.
The Clippers are trying to land Doc Rivers as their head coach while also acquiring Kevin Garnett. The Celtics would receive DeAndre Jordan for Garnett, while acquiring...
The NBA reportedly won’t allow the Clippers and Celtics to go through with the deal that would send Kevin Garnett and Doc Rivers to the Clippers for DeAndre Jordan 2 first-round draft picks because it goes against the league’s collective bargaining agreement.
According to CBS Sports:
The Celtics and Clippers were informed days ago that such an arrangement is not permitted under...

After just a few short weeks of celebration, it was time for Danny Ainge to get back to work. The Boston Celtics had just won their 17th NBA title and Ainge was starting to look like a genius after assembling one of the greatest Celtics teams of all time. Ainge hit a home run in the summer of 2007 but how would he follow it up in 2008? Read on to find out. Draft: 2008 Picks...
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...
