The beat goes on. The Boston Celtics announced that they will be holding a press conference on Monday. Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers will be in attendance to discuss Rivers' future with the team. Here's the story from CSNNE:
Celtics president of basketball operations and coach Doc Rivers will hold a joint press conference Monday at the team's facility in Waltham, Mass., where the coach's future with the team will likely be addressed.
The Celtics originally sent out a media advisory Friday morning that the press conference would be Friday, but about a half-hour later came word that it would be pushed back until Monday.
A proposed trade between the Celtics and the Los Angeles Clippers that would have Rivers end up coaching the Clippers as well as send Kevin Garnett to L.A. was held up by commissioner David Stern on Thursday. To gain league approval, the Celtics-Clippers deal would likely have to be expanded to include more players, picks or a combination of the two in order to get league approval, sources told CSNNE.com on Thursday. Stern indicated that the deal between the two teams as it has been constructed would be a violation of the league's Collective Bargaining Agreement.
