JUST DO IT ALREADY: Clips Offer 1st Round Pick For Rights To Doc Rivers, Cavs Offer Two 2nd Round Picks For Pierce

  • Jake O'Donnell

Don’t feel bad if you don’t know what to believe, NBA rumor guru Adrian Wojnarowski doesn’t seem to either. With rumors swirling about Paul Pierce headed to the Cavs for two 2nd rounders, the prospect of the Celtics getting, get this, an additional pick from the Clippers, suggests a Titanic rebuild is underway. Which it should be. The Celtics are like the Rolling Stones of basketball.

The Cavs, who have the top pick in Thursday’s draft (ya, I know, I thought basketball was over, too), are sorting out whether or not to draft rehabbing 19-year-old Nerlens Noel from Kentucky. In a way, I’d think the Rivers deal is contingent on this draft pick/Pierce swap, because it’d leave Rivers no reason to come back and coach an aging KG and Rajon “Fuck you coach” Rondo. (If you didn’t hear about that kerfuffle, here, learn.)

Here’s what we know as of riiiiiiiiiight NOW!

However, I’d be remiss if I didn’t include this Tweet, from, like, two days ago…

Stay tuned. It’s about to happen.
