  1. NBA wronging Kevin Garnett by preventing Celtics-Clippers trade

    Jun 24, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Chicago Bulls

    Kevin Garnett worked hard, played well and won big. That earned him a no-trade clause written into his contract, a rare privilege extended currently only to Garnett, Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant and Dirk Nowitzki. David Stern has, in effect, taken it away from Garnett. The Clippers tried to trade for Garnett at the trade deadline,…

  2. With Rivers deal complete, NBA unlikely to approve a subsequent trade involving Kevin Garnett and the Clippers

    Jun 23, 2013, 9:31 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce talk over a play in the fourth quarter against the New York Knicks in Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in New York

    Now that the Celtics and the Clippers have finally reached an agreement that will see Doc Rivers patrolling the sidelines in Los Angeles next season, the questions in Boston now turn to the futures of both Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Garnett was originally included as part of the package for Rivers, before commissioner David…

  3. It’s done: Clippers reach agreement with Celtics on a deal to hire Doc Rivers as head coach

    Jun 23, 2013, 6:38 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers watches his team in Boston

    Our long national nightmare is over, as the Clippers and Celtics have agreed in principle on a deal that will allow Doc Rivers to become the head coach in Los Angeles. According to multiple reports, Rivers has agreed to a three-year contract worth $21 million to coach the Clippers, which is the same amount he…

  4. Report: Clippers nearing agreement with Celtics on a deal that would allow them to hire Doc Rivers

    Jun 23, 2013, 5:19 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New Orleans Hornets

    The on-again, off-again talks between the Clippers and the Celtics to free Doc Rivers from his contract in Boston so he can coach in Los Angeles are back, and this time the teams appear to be closer than ever on making it happen. Whether or not the league will allow it is another question entirely,…

  5. Pelicans taking No. 13 pick, Shawn Marion off Mavericks’ hands?

    Jun 22, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Hornets Mavericks Basketball

    The Mavericks have been shopping the No. 13 pick to clear cap space, and maybe they’ve found a taker who will also accept the final year of Shawn Marion’s contract, which owes him $9,316,796. Fletcher Mackel of WDSU TV: REPORT don't be surprised if Pelicans acquire 13th pk from Mavs, select Giannis Adetokunbo. NOLA also…

  6. Clippers talk contract with Byron Scott and Brian Shaw

    Jun 22, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Byron Scott

    Maybe this is part of an elaborate bluff or misdirection or… Maybe the Clippers are just moving on from Doc Rivers. Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times: Clippers actually talked contract with Byron Scott after meeting with Sterling Tuesday night; Clips also talked contract with BShaw also — Brad Turner (@BA_Turner) June 22, 2013…

  7. Report: Chris Paul unhappy after Doc Rivers-to-Clippers fails to materialize

    Jun 22, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Paul reacts during their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    Chris Paul didn’t like Clippers owner Donald Sterling insinuating Paul had Vinny Del Negro had fired. Then Paul asked the Clippers to acquire Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett, which probably isn’t happening (though I won’t rule it out until the Clippers hire a coach or Rivers directly announces his intentions to coach Boston next season). How…

  8. Report: Doc Rivers to “no longer pursue” effort to become Clippers coach

    Jun 21, 2013, 5:42 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    Looks like Doc Rivers will not be coaching the Los Angeles Clippers next season. The on-again-off-again negotiations between the Clippers and Celtics are off again, and Rivers wants off the roller coaster as Boston officials feel there is no deal to be made, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. After talks failed again on Friday,…

  9. Celtics plan Doc Rivers press conference, call it off. What does that mean? Who knows.

    Jun 21, 2013, 1:52 PM EDT

    Danny Ainge Doc Rivers

    At this point, the Celtics might as well invite the Ringling Brothers into this process, because their talks with the Clippers are already a circus. Here is what we do know: • The Clippers still want to do a deal with Boston that would pass muster with the league, something where the Clippers send picks…

  10. Miami has to get bigger, better if they dream of a three-peat

    Jun 21, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Odds makers already have the Miami Heat as the favorites to win the NBA championship again next year — 2-1 odds at Bovada online. But if the Heat thought this title run was like climbing Mount Everest, wait until next year. The Bulls get Derrick Rose back. The Pacers are not going to get any…

  11. Report: Nuggets offered draft pick for Doc Rivers, will settle for Lionel Hollins or Brian Shaw

    Jun 21, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    Haven’t experienced enough twists with the Doc Rivers saga? Well you’re in luck. The NBA’s latest soap opera has a new guest star: the Nuggets. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: 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…

  12. Report: Clippers new plan to trade for Rivers first, then maybe Garnett

    Jun 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers looks on in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Brooklyn Nets in New York

    The question now isn’t “do the Clippers want to make a series of trades with the Celtics that brings them Kevin Garnett and Doc Rivers?” They do. Both sides have basically hammered out a deal they liked. The question is, “how do we structure a deal that David Stern and the NBA would sign off…

  13. David Stern shoots down Clippers/Celtics trade as constructed

    Jun 20, 2013, 3:40 PM EDT

    File photo of NBA Commissioner Stern speaks in New York

    There are two key rules in play here. One, you can’t trade a player for a coach. That is not actually in the Collective Bargaining Agreement (according to Larry Coon, CBA expert), the document doesn’t mention the idea at all, but the league is saying since it is not outlined as permitted it is not…

  14. Report: Clippers, Celtics trying to work out Garnett trade league will approve

    Jun 20, 2013, 1:51 PM EDT

    Celtics forward Garnett and head coach Rivers react to a foul called on Garnett in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta.

    UPDATE 1:50 pm: The Clippers and Celtics are actively talking about the trade on Thursday, but now they have a new issue — one that will pass muster with the league. You cannot trade for a coach. You cannot have side deals or contingencies as part of a trade. There are some precedents of compensation…

  15. Celtics, Clippers restart Doc Rivers-Kevin Garnett trades talks at Chris Paul’s wish

    Jun 19, 2013, 6:20 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    Update (6:40 p.m.): Chris Paul is the catalyst for trade talks resuming. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: Clippers management believed Boston would eventually come back to them out of a belief that the Celtics-Rivers relationship would be difficult to repair, but league sources told Y! Sports that Paul’s desire to play for Rivers – and…

  16. Report: 100 percent chance Mavericks won’t keep No. 13 pick

    Jun 19, 2013, 5:33 PM EDT

    O.J. Mayo, Dwight Howard

    The Mavericks have made no secret about wanting to prevent the No. 13 pick from cutting into their cap room, whether that means trading the pick or drafting and stashing a player. The idea of wasting a lottery pick, either by dumping it in an uneven trade or using it on a lesser prospect just…

  17. Chris Paul, not Celtics trade, will make or break Clippers’ offseason

    Jun 18, 2013, 3:24 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Chris Paul

    Although the Celtics would be in a tough spot if they don’t trade with the Clippers, Los Angeles doesn’t face the same pressure. Acquiring Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett and maybe Paul Pierce is one option of many. The Clippers will continue interviewing Lionel Hollins, Brian Shaw and Byron Scott, and if they choose the best…

  18. Celtics stuck in limbo without Clippers trade

    Jun 18, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    If the Celtics-Clippers trade is indeed dead – and like Kurt, I have my doubts – the offseason doesn’t get any easier for the Celtics. Boston is obviously ready to move on from Kevin Garnett and Doc Rivers, at least if it nets a certain combination of DeAndre Jordan, Eric Bledsoe and first-round picks and…

  19. Report: Clippers pull out of talks with Celtics

    Jun 18, 2013, 12:45 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks - Game One

    Trade deals come back to life more often then Freddy Krueger. I’m not willing to believe this deal is dead until I see real evidence. Meaning the Clippers hire another coach (Lionel Hollins, Brian Shaw or Byron Scott) or the Celtics announce they will keep Paul Pierce and not buy him out. Until then, anything…

  20. Why not another Clippers/Celtics trade update: Maybe tomorrow

    Jun 18, 2013, 2:19 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Garnett complains about a foul during their NBA basketball game against Brooklyn Nets in Boston

    The Clippers and Celtics keep inching toward a deal. A much-discussed one that would send Kevin Garnett and the rights to sign coach Doc Rivers to Los Angeles. The Celtics would get DeAndre Jordan and a pick or two. The sides are close but there is no deal yet so they will talk again Tuesday,…

  21. Report: Doc Rivers having doubts about going to Clippers

    Jun 17, 2013, 7:02 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    The Celtics and Clippers are still discussing the trade that would send Kevin Garnett and Doc Rivers to Los Angeles, but the whole deal is predicated on Rivers wanting to coach the Clippers. So, even if the Celtics and Clippers agree how to handle Eric Bledsoe, Jason Terry and Courtney Lee, Rivers still must give…

  22. Mark Cuban plans to lure top free agents by giving them roster input

    Jun 17, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    The Mavericks enter the off-season as one of the major players in free agency. Not only do  they have money to spend, but they also have a history of championship level contention, a still very good Dirk Nowitzki, and Mark Cuban to close the deal when it’s time to make the pitch on why the…

  23. If Doc is out, who is in for Celtics? Maybe Del Negro, Frank

    Jun 17, 2013, 1:43 PM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro

    There is once again momentum to the idea that Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett (then later likely Paul Pierce) are headed to the Clippers. It may or may not happen, but a smart GM like Danny Ainge has to start planning for any eventuality. So, if Doc Rivers is gone from the bench in Boston,…

  24. Where does Celtics’ Rivers, Garnett trade to Clippers stand? They’re talking.

    Jun 17, 2013, 12:08 PM EDT

    Celtics forward Garnett and head coach Rivers react to a foul called on Garnett in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta.

    UPDATE 5:45 pm : This is getting close. The Celtics have agreed no Eric Bledsoe but they want the Clippers to take on one of their bad contracts, either Jason Terry or Courtney Lee. How that shakes out is really all that’s left, according to multiple reports. 12:08 pm: If you’re a Clippers fan who…

  25. Danny Green takes NBA Finals 3-point record, NBA Finals MVP award next?

    Jun 17, 2013, 1:28 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game 5

    Danny Green rose for his 33rd 3-point attempt of the 2013 NBA Finals, and for the 23rd time, the ball splashed through the net. On cue, the Heat called timeout, creating a scene similar baseball’s game stoppages to honor broken records. Green – who broke the record for 3-pointers in an NBA Finals and would…
