Doc Rivers to Clippers official; Celtics to hold press conference at 6:30
|06.25.13 at 5:38 pm ET|
The Celtics made the conclusion of a long coaching saga official, announcing that the team had permitted Doc Rivers to walk away from the final three years (and $21 million) of his deal to coach the Clippers in exchange for a future first-round pick. Celtics GM Danny Ainge will address the media in a press conference at the team’s practice facility in Waltham at 6:30 p.m.
According to Ken Berger of CBSSports.com (via twitter), the deal prohibits any player trades between the Celtics and Clippers until after the 2013-14 season — something that would prevent the C’s from dealing Kevin Garnett or Paul Pierce directly to the Clippers.
