If Celtics and Clippers can finalize a deal that includes Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett will waive his no-trade clause, league sources tell Y!

The final hurdle of a deal centers on the Clippers' willingness to include guard Eric Bledsoe into a trade package with Boston, sources said.

The Celtics would like to land Clippers point guard Eric Bledsoe. (USA Today Sports)Boston and Los Angeles are discussing a package that will send DeAndre Jordan and two first-round picks to the Celtics for Garnett and the right to hire Rivers as coach, sources said.

Garnett will waive his no-trade clause to go to the Clippers, where he'll be reunited with Rivers. Celtics assistant Ty Lue also will likely join them in Los Angeles, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Looks like we won't be getting Tyron Lue. I'm wondering what the Celtics plan to do now. Rebuild with the young talent the have? I don't see Bledsoe getting much playing time with Rondo and Bradley in the lineup. Maybe Boston wants to move Pierce and Rondo as well? Who knows.

What if they did Paul Pierce to Memphis for Ed Davis + filler? Memphis's interest in this depends on how realistic a finals push would be next year.

KG and Dwight wouldn't be on the same team as Celtics want Bledsoe also.



Why the hell would Lakers not accept that? Griffin and Bledsoe for Dwight, who would just leave for nothing anyway? Wow.

I don't understand what's pretty good about that.

Lee, Crawford, Sullinger and Melo will probably be average at best players and Bledsoe will never play when Rondo comes back.

Pierce and Terry can barely handle 35+ minutes consistently aswell.

If they're just starting to go in a different direction, imo that roster is a good place to start from. I think if they're smart they deal Pierce this summer. They may even decide to deal Rondo next trade deadline or next summer and run with Bledsoe and Bradley.

To be clear: Rivers can't technically be part of trade, but Celtics would release him from contractual obligations based on deal package.

Source involved in Celtics-Clippers discussions tells Yahoo! Sports: "Not looking good, but I wouldn't say (it's over) for sure."

Final hurdle remains unchanged: Clips don't want to part with DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe in deal, sources tells Y! Ainge wants Bledsoe.

Throughout this awkward dance with Clips, Boston's been clear with Doc Rivers on this: If it all falls apart, they still want

For now, discussions deemed "stalled," one source in talks tells Y! Question becomes this: How soon before one side -- or both -- bails?

I don't see how the Clips can do this deal unless they know that Chris Paul is staying. If they know he is staying...who cares about Bledsoe...do the deal without thinking twice.
