NBA Trade Rumors – The Los Angeles Clippers resumed conversations with the Boston Celtics in regards to the deal that would send head coach Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett to the Clippers, and DeAndre Jordan together with two first-round picks the other way. It seems that it is essentially a done deal.

Chris Paul, who will be a free agent this summer, seems to have gotten involved and pushed the Clippers to make the deal. Understandably, the Clippers obliged, as they do not want their superstar free agent to leave LA this summer and want to keep him happy.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the two teams have come to and agreement and are seeking ownership approval:

After superstar Chris Paul injected his influence to accelerate talks, the Los Angeles Clippers are searching for ownership approval to complete a blockbuster deal to bring Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers and forward Kevin Garnett to L.A., league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

The deal would cost a lot of money, as Rivers would be signed to something in the vicinity of a 5-year $35 million deal.

Basically, it’s up to Donald Sterling from here on out. If he opens up the wallet and pulls the trigger on this deal, he is guaranteed to keep Paul in LA and also hire one of the best coaches in the NBA.
