NBA Rumors: Clippers Want Celtics Doc Rivers, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett?

Might we call them the Boston Celtics West?

It’s a thought that would make the stomach’s in Beantown turn, but according to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Los Angeles Clippers want to bring not only Doc Rivers to LA, but also Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett,

Per Stein:

There’s a rising belief around the NBA that Doc, KG & Pierce all want to carry on as a trio in Clipperland if they can’t roll on in Boston

How far the truth extends here is unknown. Is it that they all have a desire to play in LA? Are the Clippers simply a backup plan if something happens in Boston? What happens if just one of the three doesn’t return to Boston but the others do?

At this point its simply another twirl of the rumor mill but given the Clippers’ lack of a head coach and the refusal from Doc Rivers to commit to the Celtics along with the unknown scenario that is Paul Pierce’s contractual situation, it has to be something to keep an eye on.
