07:07 AM ET 06.24 | To what extent will the Celtics reshape the franchise on the fly? [A league source close to negotiations] told the Herald on Saturday the Celtics also had pulled a separate offer of Kevin Garnett for DeAndre Jordan out of consideration. Asked if the sides planned to revisit the Garnett deal in the future, the source said, "Read David Stern's comments. KG can't happen." The NBA commissioner had spoken out against these negotiations during a radio interview last week, saying the league won't approve any trade that combines players and coaches. It now appears Garnett has at least as good a chance of returning to the Celtics this fall as of somehow reaching the Clippers. The league simply may take too strong a stand on a second deal.

I really don't see what the problem is. If two teams want to make a legit trade, why is the league getting in the way. It's not like Boston is giving him away. David Stern can't go away fast enough IMO.

Czar Stern has been in charge so long he thinks he is the NBA.............

The coach is gone. Any trade would be a players trade. Might not be easy to do but it's doable.




Go away Stern.

Lord Stern's excuse is stupid. That is a legit trade. Allowing Doc to get traded to the Clippers should be the one in question because according to the rule there is no such thing as trading a coach.

Sure players can be traded.....But the coach is involved and it just doesn't smell right

But the coach still got traded for a first rounder. That smells more fishy.

Stern already made it clear that any followup deal with the Clippers for Garnett would be rejected. This makes the deal for Rivers that much more suspicious.

Don't Come To LA, Bro.

How does Ainge even gauge the value of a first round pick from the Clippers in 2015 when LAC is expected to be a title contender for the next few years?

Definitely doesn't pass the Scratch-N-Sniff test...



Wait for it...
