Earlier tonight, ESPN’s Marc Stein suggested that the Los Angeles Clippers and Boston Celtics were nearing completion on the trade that they’ve been working on since last weekend. But as the night grew later and the two sides appeared to still be mulling over small details, Brad Turner reported that the two sides would continue to iron out the details tomorrow morning.
The details have apparently been ironed out.
Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the two sides have struck a deal and now seek ownership approval.
After superstar Chris Paul injected his influence to accelerate talks, the Los Angeles Clippers are searching for ownership approval to complete a blockbuster deal to bring Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers and forward Kevin Garnett to L.A., league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Clippers management planned to huddle with owner Donald Sterling on Wednesday night in Los Angeles to get his approval and move on Thursday to finalize an agreement with the Celtics, sources said. Sterling met with Clippers coaching candidate Brian Shaw, an Indiana Pacers assistant coach, on Wednesday night.
