NBA has questions about the Clippers-Celtics trade proposal

That deal sounds fairly reasonable, but it's apparently illegal by NBA standards due to the fact that Rivers can't technically be involved in the trade. To get around that, the Celtics are asking the Clippers to include the first-round picks in exchange for Boston releasing Rivers from his current contract -- the "contingency" that is illegal under NBA rules.
