Clippers and Celtics wanting to complete deal today

USA TODAY Sports

Adrian Wojnarowski is now reporting Celtics showing a willingness to find and accept another asset to replace Eric Bledsoe.

Per Adrian's report:

The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers are discussing possible compromises to including guardEric Bledsoe into the Kevin Garnett-Doc Rivers deal with hopes of completing an agreement on Monday, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Discussions over a blockbuster deal reached an impasse on Saturday when Boston general manager Danny Ainge held firm that Bledsoe had to be a part of package that included DeAndre Jordan and a first-round pick, but sources say that Boston has shown a willingness to find another asset to supplant Bledsoe and complete the complicated deal, sources said.

What are the Clippers prepared to give Doc Rivers?

The Clippers are prepared to give Rivers a five-year deal to coach and believe acquiring Rivers and Garnett - who will waive his no-trade clause - will lock up the re-signing of free-agent superstar Chris Paul, sources said.
