According to multiple reports, the Celtics  and Clippers ended their trade discussions Tuesday after failing to reach a compromise.
ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne tweeted  that the Clippers have walked away and are saying that talks are “off,” while The Boston Globe’s Baxter Holmes tweeted  that Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has confirmed the breakdown of negotiations.
The talks are said to have centered around the Celtics sending Kevin Garnett  and coach Doc Rivers  to Los Angeles for DeAndre Jordan and a first-round draft pick, but apparently the Celtics wanted a second first-round pick and the Clippers were not amenable to sweetening the pot.
Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reported  that the Clippers also were hesitant to pay Rivers a $35 million extension as well as $3 million for Jordan’s trade kicker. Wojnarowski additionally tweeted  that Ainge has called Rivers to update him on the situation and tell him that he still wants him back to coach the Celtics.
