Celtics GM Danny Ainge may have asked for too much, which may have ticked off Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
The dissolution of the deal – which was to send DeAndre Jordan, Caron Butler and a first-round pick to the Celtics for Kevin Garnett, coach Doc Rivers and either Courtney Lee or Jason Terry – may reflect poorly on the Clippers, who are still trying to hold onto free-agent-to-be Chris Paul.
Will this force Paul to re-evaluate remaining in Los Angeles? Will Rivers remain the coach of the Celtics?
And is this deal really dead?
In this interview with Cinesport’s Noah Coslov, our Mark Heisler answers those questions and others.
