Doc Rivers headed to Clippers

The on-again, off-again talks between the Celtics and Clippers -- mostly related to Kevin Garnett, DeAndre Jordan, coach Doc Rivers and draft compensation -- have finally produced an outcome involving the last two. Rivers and his three-year, $21 million contract will cross the country in exchange for a first-round draft pick. Did the Celtics get enough in return for the seven-year coaching veteran with a championship and Coach of the Year award under his belt? Will Rivers finally get the Clippers to the NBA Finals?

Doc Rivers to the Clippers?

Doc Rivers has been the most successful Celtics coach in a long time, but he soon might be taking his talents to Los Angeles. The Clippers and the Celtics are discussing a move in which Boston would allow Rivers out of his three-year contract to sign with Los Angeles. Boston would send Kevin Garnett to the Clippers and receive DeAndre Jordan and a future first-round pick, although the Celtics are insisting that Eric Bledsoe be included in the trade as well. Would acquiring Rivers be worth two of the Clippers' young stars?

DeAndre Jordan redefined "Lob City" Sunday night with an incredible throwdown on the Pistons' Brandon Knight. Jordan entered the night with 135 dunks, the third-most in the NBA, but none were quite as impressive as this one. Even Jordan's fellow NBA players were impressed, taking to Twitter to react to the dunk heard 'round the league.

Kevin Garnett says he's going to "live and die green," which means he doesn't want to waive his no-trade clause before the deadline. The Celtics may be looking to deal Garnett, potentially to the Clippers for a combination of Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan. Since Boston likely isn't a championship team this season, would it be better for Garnett to try to bring a title to Los Angeles?
