Celtics Blog Post New Entry

Doc recap so far today

Posted by shawn cassidy on June 17, 2013 at 7:30 PM



Well if you haven't been looking around the web today you have missed a show. Doc Rivers is almost on the west coast if he already is not. The trigger man of this era was Danny? He is by force. It's Doc's asking for the murder suicide by the hands of Danny. So what's going on up to this point?



Baxter Holmes      @BaxterHolmes

Hearing Clips already prepping for intro press conference for at least Doc & KG. Hard to see deal not being done soon.


Doc can't wait to see Chris Paul's face. So what about Pierce?


Marc Stein        @ESPNSteinLine

To be clear: Paul Pierce is NOT part of this trade. But leaguewide expectation is he will end up with Clips in July if Clips get Doc and KG


So what's the latest on the actual deal? Here's ESPN Boston's take or source on the deal.



The Celtics and Clippers have relaunched discussions on a new trade framework that could bring a resolution to the complicated talks regarding coach Doc Rivers and star forward Kevin Garnett potentially going to Los Angeles in a multiplayer deal, according to sources close to the process.

With the Clippers adamant that prized young guard Eric Bledsoe will not be included in the trade for Garnett, sources told ESPN.com one proposed tweak to end the weekend stalemate in the talks is the prospect of the Clippers taking back the contract of either Courtney Lee or Jason Terry from the Celtics.

Shedding the long-term money owed to either Lee or Terry, sources said, could convince the Celtics to relent on their demand that Bledsoe be included in the trade. A deal could be completed later Monday or by Tuesday, sources said.



The backlash of all of this will be a show indeed. Who will say what? I could give a crap about Doc. I'm hurt by the thought of KG and Pierce out of Boston. The deal has a plus, maybe. The deal sucks. Not great by any means. But for Danny it appears that he'll cap space to either or trade or sign some free agents this summer. Will have to stay tuned I guess.

It honestly seems like pierce isn't forcing his way out which a couple of people on here were saying yesterday if these reports are true. Either way I wonder what rondo is thinking. We'll find out soon enough because rondo isn't gonna hold his tongue even if we have to wait until training camp.

Pierce isn't mentioned. But I think reporters have thrown him in the mix because of KG and Doc. But the thing about Pierce is this. He was here before Doc, and KG. This is his place to retire. Will see how it all plays out. If Pierce stays. He will restore faith in a time of UN-loyal people. Maybe a new coach can fix the Rondo-Pierce thing that should have worked better in the past years.

It's starting to turn into KG for Jordan, which sucks for us, unless Jordan is ready to make a big career move. What a stunning developement - the Big Three totally abandon the Cs and Rondo, along with Doc.

Though I would have enjoyed one more attempt at a run, and Bledsoe would certainly make this a whole lot better, I do think analyzing any deal is dependent on which free-agents they are able to secure this summer and/or next and on how they finish in 2014-15. It''s a shame to see this run end this way, but it might be the right decision. Watching Pierce this April (without a PG), he might be best suited to be a 6th man for his last year or two.
