Doc Rivers to Clippers official; Celtics to hold press conference at 6:30

Posted By WEEI On June 25, 2013 @ 5:38 pm In General | 26 Comments

The Celtics [1] made the conclusion of a long coaching saga official, announcing that the team had permitted Doc Rivers [2] 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 [3]), 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 [4] orĀ Paul Pierce [5] directly to the Clippers.
