NBA Trade Rumors – The NBA Finals are finished and with no games scheduled for around four months, we will all have to indulge in a summer full off boredom. But hey, we still have the trade rumors and the free agency to look forward to. Here are the latest trade and free agency rumors around the league.
Doc Rivers no longer interested in Clippers job
The Los Angeles Clippers and the Boston Celtics are drifting further and further apart, and it doesn’t look like the two teams will be able to make any kind of a deal. Adrian Wojnarowski has the following:
After talks failed again on Friday, Doc Rivers will no longer pursue the Clippers coaching job, league source tells Y!

Rule of thumb when it comes to this deal: it will not be officially dead until the Clippers actually hire a new coach. LA have pulled in and out of these negotations, seemingly closing the door on a deal and then re-opening it. However, the fact that the two means did come to an agreement and the league disallowed it doesn’t really help.
The Clippers continue to refuse offering a first-round pick for the release of Rivers, while the Celtics are not interested in a second-round pick.
