Report: Clippers And Celtics Finally Agree On Deal For Doc Rivers

According to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Clippers and Celtics have agreed in principle on a deal that will send Doc Rivers to Los Angeles. Wojnarowski is also reporting that Rivers has agreed to a three-year, $21 million contract with LA.

In return for the rights to hire Rivers, the Clippers have agreed to send Boston an unprotected first-round pick in the 2015 draft. The much-discussed trade stalled Friday when Rivers told the Clippers he was no longer interested in the position, but apparently Chris Paul continued to push for a deal to bring him in.

Talks started again on Sunday when the Clippers offered the Celtics the first-round pick to freeRivers from his contract with Boston, sources said.

The NBA still needs to grant approval to the deal, but the teams have been led to believe that won't be a problem, sources said.
