AP Source: Clippers land new coach in Doc Rivers

BOSTON -- A Boston Celtics official tells The Associated Press that a deal to allow Doc Rivers to coach the Los Angeles Clippers has been agreed to.
The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal was contingent on NBA approval and negotiations between Rivers and the Clippers over a new contract.
Rivers had three years and $21 million remaining on his deal with the Celtics, but he has expressed reluctance to coach through a rebuilding process. The 2008 NBA champions appear to be headed for one after losing in the first round of the playoffs this season.
The teams were also discussing a deal that would send Kevin Garnett to the Clippers, but NBA commissioner David Stern said he wouldn't approve a deal in which coaches were traded for active players.
