Stern puts to end Clippers/Celtics trade rumors



LINK

quote:

Remember that one about Doc Rivers getting traded to the Clippers in a deal involving Kevin Garnett? Never mind.

The Celtics and Clippers were informed days ago that such an arrangement is not permitted under league trade rules, even if the deals were separated into two distinct transactions, a league source told CBSSports.com on Thursday.

In a radio tour in the hours before Game 7 of the NBA Finals on Thursday, commissioner David Stern appeared on several programs and put this saga out of its misery. His strongest comments came on ESPN Radio in New York, where Stern said, "The teams are aware that the collective bargaining agreement doesn't authorize trades involving coaches' contracts."

The only incentives other than player contracts that are permitted in NBA trades, Stern said, are draft picks and cash.

"The teams know that," Stern said. "It has been confirmed to them. ... It can't be gotten around by breaking it up into two transactions."


Good riddance. And to Stern.

So basically the Celtics release Rivers and complete the trade and sign Rivers?

No, Stern would veto anything that would involve an agreement between the Clippers and Celtics that would have Rivers becoming the Clippers next HC.

Stern's final act as commissioner should be to call Donald Sterling into his office, put a pistol on the desk and say "You're selling the Clippers to Larry Ellison. We had two accountants determine the fair market value of the team and this is how much he'll pay you for them."

If both teams agree to it, I don't see the big deal

if doc can get released from his contract, i dont see why he cant be the clippers HC. i get them not allowing the celtics compensation for doc's contract, but if wiggles out, i dont see why it makes a difference. even if he does "follow" KG out west. how many times did larry brown up and leave in the middle of a contract, only to coach somewhere the next year?

Not a chance. He might veto the players trade aspect of it but I doubt it.

There would be no "agreement". Celtics would let Doc Rivers get out of his contract. Clippers would then sign him.

on second thought, ellison has his chance to buy g-state a couple years back, but didnt want to pay the price it took. i understand hes a businessman and puts values on things, but the dude has got billions upon billions, i dont think an extra $50-100M (or whatever it was) should have been a deal breaker

doesn't want any other team to be a threat to his Miami Heat

a team with CP, Pierce, Griffin and KG coached by Doc would be nasty

Doc gets released from the rest of his contract and retires.

Decides to come back the next day. Clippers hire him.

In the meantime, Clips trade Deandre to the Celts for KG straight up.

What could Stern realistically do about it?

especially since during the collective bargaining, he specifically targeted ways to keep it from happening in the future, and all but assured the heat would not be able to stay together through their signed 6 year deals...
