The Boston Celtics would consider hiring Vinny Del Negro if Doc Rivers decides to leave, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the situation.
Ainge is said to be is an admirer of Del Negro‚Äôs up-tempo philosophy.
‚ÄúAs a stopgap for that situation, sure,‚ÄĚ said one source. ‚ÄúVinnie would be the perfect person for what they need. All of the all-star coaches, or whatever you want to call them, are going, and knowing how Danny feels about him, (Del Negro) would be a good fit.‚ÄĚDel Negro owns a career winning percentage of .533 in five seasons as coach of the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Clippers.

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here‚Ä¶ highlighting the big storyline. Because there‚Äôs nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

That was fast. ¬†A few hours ago, a KG-to-LA in a ‚Äútrade‚ÄĚ that involved Doc Rivers was allegedly going hot and heavy. ¬† All the local guys were chiming in¬†with their sources too, making it seem like this thing...
The Los Angeles Clippers have not formally requested permission to interview Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers in the wake of widespread reports about Rivers' potential departure for Boston, but there is strong mutual interest between the parties, according, http://juicedsportsblog.com/sports-news/news/sources-rivers-clips-have-mutual-interest
Steve Bulpett is reporting in the Herald that now that the cat is out of the bag and everyone knows that Doc and the Clippers have a mutual admiration society, the teams have begun talks that could lead to a deal getting done.
With some clear mutual interest having been established, the situation has progressed to the point where the Celtics and Clippers are now engaging in talks...
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. Of course, Danny Ainge had some crazy demands and it seems like the deal was hung up on Eric Bledsoe's inclusion.
And so, it appears both teams have now moved on?
Umm? RT @BA_Turner: Clippers...
As we‚Äôve been reporting, Doc Rivers and the Boston Celtics may be preparing to part ways. ¬†Rivers has no interest in the rebuilding situation the Celtics are about to embark on,¬†and Rivers is open to coaching other teams.¬†

It would be complicated, but not impossible.
There's a rising belief around the NBA that Doc, KG & Pierce all want to carry on as a trio in Clipperland if they can't roll on in Boston
