Report: KG will drop no-trade clause
Yahoo! Sports reported Saturday that Kevin Garnett would be willing to waive his no-trade clause if the Celtics and Clippers can finalize a package deal involving Rivers.
Sources told ESPN earlier this week that Rivers is highly intrigued by the idea of coaching the Clippers should he not return to Boston for a 10th season on the bench. By utilizing Rivers as a trade asset and working a separate deal for Garnett, Boston could land a combination of young talent, expiring contracts, and future draft picks to aid its own overdue roster overhaul.
The Celtics and Clippers engaged in trade talks at February's deadline, including a potential swap that would have saw Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan come to Boston in exchange for Garnett. According to the Yahoo! report, the final hurdle of this potential deal would be the Clippers including Bledsoe in a package that could also include two first-round draft picks and Jordan.
