After much too much talking, the Celtics and Clippers finally agreed to trade Doc Rivers yesterday, and as a result Los Angeles now has a new coach. And, they’re hoping, a worldclass point guard ready to resign. It all makes sense.
Here’s what doesn’t make sense though – 2 weeks of negotiations yielded Boston…a 2014 1st round pick? Right, the Celts need to get younger, I get it. But the Clips should be in the conference finals next year, right? So that pick will be what, in the 20s? Way to leverage your hand, Boston. Nothing like letting your A+ coach go so you can draft another Fab Melo.
Clips-Celt Deal Dead?
