Eric Bledsoe Reportedly in Possible Kevin Garnett/Doc Rivers Deal With Clippers

by June 17, 2013

There’s all kinds of madness being reported regarding a possible deal between the Boston Celtics and LA Clippers. According to Yahoo! Sports, the latest chip to be included in the trade is Eric Bledsoe: “The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers are discussing possible compromises to including guard Eric Bledsoe into the Kevin Garnett-Doc Rivers deal with hopes of completing an agreement on Monday, league sources said. Discussions over a blockbuster deal reached an impasse on Saturday when Boston general manager Danny Ainge held firm that Bledsoe had to be a part of package that included DeAndre Jordan and a first-round pick, but sources say that Boston has shown a willingness to find another asset to supplant Bledsoe and complete the complicated deal, sources said. The Clippers are prepared to give Rivers a five-year deal to coach and believe acquiring Rivers and Garnett – who will waive his no-trade clause – will lock up the re-signing of free-agent superstar Chris Paul, sources said.”
