LOS ANGELES (AP) — A person familiar with the deal says Austin Rivers is coming to the Los Angeles Clippers, where the guard will play under his father and team coach Doc Rivers.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because the team has not announced the trade, which also involves the Celtics and Suns. It is expected to be finalized later in the day.
The three teams involved have agreed to the deal that will send Rivers to LA, current Clipper Reggie Bullock to the Suns and two players to the Celtics — Phoenix center Shavlik Randolph and current Clipper Chris Douglas-Roberts.
The Celtics acquired Rivers on Monday as part of the three-way deal Boston struck last weekend with Memphis and New Orleans to send Jeff Green to the Grizzlies.
