NBA Trade Rumors – The Los Angeles Clippers have pulled out of the blockbuster trade that would have sent Kevin Garnett and Doc Rivers to LA, with DeAndre Jordan and a first-round pick going the other way, according to Ken Berger of CBS. Here are the latest news on it through the Twittersphere and why the deal ultimately fell apart:

By the looks of it, the main reason the deal fell apart was probably the fact that Clippers owner Donald Sterling is stingy and not the first-round pick that the two teams didn’t agree on. A Clippers first-round pick would not be worth that much considering that the team would be in the playoffs over the next couple of seasons.

The deal made sense for both teams and it now complicates things. The Clippers still haven’t shown an improved roster that would convince Paul to re-sign. The Celtics, on the other hand, will most likely have to either keep Garnett next season or allow him to retire without getting anything in return.
