Source to Globe: "If Doc is honest, his dream scenario is him coaching the Clippers with Kevin Garnett & a chance to win the championship."— Baxter Holmes (@BaxterHolmes) June 14, 2013
For that to happen, a trade would have to happen.
Garnett would need to waive his no-trade clause before any deal with the Clippers could be struck. According to Holmes, the 15-time All-Star would likely do so for another chance to compete for a title with Rivers. "A possible package could include Rivers and the 37-year-old Garnett heading to the Clippers," wrote Holmes, "with point guard Eric Bledsoe, center DeAndre Jordan, and two first-round draft picks heading to the Celtics."
If that's the package, at this point I think I'd be tempted to take it. Not sure where Paul Pierce fits into this scenario though. Maybe going to a 3rd team?
Ainge denied Clippers' request to speak to Doc, a league source said. Another said Doc would be Chris Paul's No. 1 choice.— Baxter Holmes (@BaxterHolmes) June 14, 2013
