Celtics, Clippers Reach Deal To Send Doc Rivers To Los Angeles: REPORTS

The Los Angeles Clippers have reached an agreement in principle with the Boston Celtics to acquire the rights to hire head coach Doc Rivers, according to multiple reports.

Jackie MacMullan of reported on Sunday that the Clippers will sign Rivers to a three-year deal worth $21 million. Per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Celtics will free Rivers from his current contract in exchange for an unprotected 2015 first-round draft pick. Both MacMullan and Wojnarowski report that the NBA must approve the deal. Wojnarowski reported that both teams believe getting the league's approval won't be an issue.

If the NBA approves the reported deal, it would be the culmination of protracted and public negotiations between the two clubs. Previously reported iterations of the deal included players as well as Rivers, notably DeAndre Jordan and Kevin Garnett. Before Game 7 of the NBA Finals, NBA Commissioner David Stern said that coaches' contracts cannot be involved in trades under the current collective bargaining agreement, per Ken Berger of CBS Sports."

Negotiations for a potential trade involving Rivers and Garnett reportedly stalled early last week when the Clippers backed out. A nudge from Chris Paul caused L.A. to reach out to Boston again, as reported by Wojnarowski.
