LA Times -Then there is the compensation Ainge would seek from the Clippers for Rivers.
Two executives said the first thing Ainge would want is young players such as Clippers center DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe, and an expiring contract such as Caron Butler’s $8-million deal.
Then Ainge would want to trade a veteran player such as 37-year-old Kevin Garnett (he has a no-trade clause) and add guards Courtney Lee and Jason Terry in the deal to the Clippers.
Ainge also would want two first-round draft picks from the Clippers, the executives said.
Two actual NBA executives really believe Ainge would ask for that? For Doc Rivers? Seriously? No, I don’t believe it. They had to be messing with this reporter. They had to be. Hahaha good one guys.
