The Celtics season was over for a little over 48 hours before the rumor mill went bananas.
On Monday morning, Stephen A. Smith hit ESPN's First Take with some wild speculation. How wild? Under Smith's scenario, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce would go to the Clippers, and Doc Rivers would sign on to coach the Clips.
Smith says he's hearing that if those three make their way to Los Angeles, the Celtics would receive Blake Griffin, Eric Bledsoe, DeAndre Jordan and Caron Butler in return.
Smith took to Twitter to make sure the rumors didn't get too out of control, though he did little to squash them.
Listen: I said what's being talked about, scenarios that are being contemplated. Can't rule anything out W/ Clips/Celts. Absolutely nothing!— Stephen A Smith (@stephenasmith) May 6, 2013
So it's not necessarily happening. But it's being "talked about." Whatever that means.
