The Clippers were also hoping to land Rivers, the son of Clippers Coach Doc Rivers who was recently traded from the New Orleans Pelicans to the Boston Celtics, and were believed to be engaging the Phoenix Suns, among other teams, in talks to take on the $1.8 million in salary the Clippers would need to unload to complete such a trade.

Nate Robinson will be going to Boston, though it is expected to be a temporary stay as he is expected to seek a buyout of his contract with the intention of signing with a playoff team. Teams who may be interested in Robinson if he is able to secure a buyout include the Los Angeles Clippers and Cleveland Cavaliers. ESPN.com

It is entirely possible, and perhaps even probable, that veteran forward Tayshaun Prince will wind up with a buyout from the Celtics. But a source close to the situation told Sporting News on Tuesday evening that there have been "no substantive conversations" yet about such an arrangement. Prince was part of the three-team trade (with the Pelicans) that sent forward Jeff Green to the Grizzlies, a deal that was finalized Monday. Prince, 34, does not fit into the long-term rebuilding plans of the Celtics, who are also moving guard Jameer Nelson to the Nuggets for point guard Nate Robinson as part of a salary slash.
