Rumor: Clippers pulling out of Doc deal? (May be posturing)

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

Is the deal off? Or are the Clippers just trying to gain some leverage?

Apparently the hangup is the inclusion of Eric Bledsoe.

L.A. Clippers, Boston Celtics in talks about Doc Rivers

The Clippers' lack of willingness to give up third-year point guard Eric Bledsoe could be a dealbreaker. They fear that they would be compromising their future by giving him up and are currently contemplating using him in a sign-and-trade that could involve forward Blake Griffin and land Lakers and free-agent-to-be Dwight Howard. Other players who are the Clippers' radar as possible upgrades by way of a trade involving Bledsoe include Orlando Magic guard Arron Afflalo and Indiana small forward Danny Granger.

Update - or maybe not.

Not so fast.

And now the dreaded "stalled" negotiations.
