This is from a article in regards to CP3 resigning in LA and them trying to keep him happy at all costs. Uh oh it's real this week will be very interesting.

Quote
"If Chris wants Vinny [Del Negro], he'll be the coach," one source tied to the Clippers and Paul said. "If Chris wants [Kevin Garnett], they'll push harder for it."

They can push all they want. Garnett is not getting traded. He has the final say so and he isn't gonna agree to get traded.

KG and Rondo are so tight.. Why would he ditch him for CP3?

If the Clippers have to "push hard," to try and get KG, maybe Danny Ainge wasnt the one who fascilliated that trade talk and it has been the Clippers all along. Maybe they already dangled Bledsoe and Jordan out there and Ainge turned it down.

I dont know what "pushing harder," could mean for the Clippers when all they have is Bledsoe and Jordan. Maybe getting a third team involved to try and change Ainge's mind?

Maybe they mean pushing harder to get KG to drop the no trade clause. But I feel like if Danny Ainge was trying to push Kevin Garnett out the door that hard for this Clippers deal, KG would feel a little slighted and accept it.

C'mon people, it's clear as day that if KG want another chance to win a championship he's gonna go to Clippers. Now i'm not saying that he'll go, but if Danny comes to him and say that the organization would like to go in other direction, then that's another pair of socks.

And that's has nothing to do with Pierce being traded or not, if Danny tell him KG we don't want you here anymore, hes out the door.

We don't know what Dany will do, will he make rebulid on the fly or will he make reload for next two years max, either way everything is possible...

Bos sends: kg
Bos gets     : Josh smith

lac send     : Jordan and Bledsoe
Lac get       : kg

Atl sends : josh smith
Atl gets    : bledsoe and jordan


Unless the c's are ending up with jsmoove or dwight, no thanks to trading kg.

Can't see it happening. They'll try and grab Smith without moving any of our big 3. And why would ATL end up with the two great young assets for moving a guy who's walking in a few months? I feel like Danny would rather move KG for the Clippers duo than Smith.
Danny just wants to give us a real shot at winning WITH KG so I feel they'll go after Smith. He's trying to do this without giving up Green but if he has to he'll give them Sully, Melo and a first round pick. He'll also make them take Bass and Lee to make money work. I just can't see Smith agreeing to extend with anyone else than us.

"Game 4: 4 minutes 28 seconds 87-81
Game 5:2 minutes 28 seconds 84-81
These are scores in the 4th period and time left in Games 4 and 5 in 2011 versus the Heat. The Celtics were ahead in both games and Rondo was hurt, playing with one arm."  -Pearl 131  So close, yet so far.

If DA adds a scrub or two before Thursday, then we'll have our answer that he's going as far as KG and PP can take us. On the other hand if nothing goes down before Thursday, then there's gonna be a huge story(s) by the end of the day, and we're gonna see a whole different team on Friday!
I just don't see any way for Danny to pick up solid rotation players from ****ency or DLeague, they're just not out there!  And we don't have enough valuable players, other than KG or PP, to get any meaningful trades done.  We also just don't have enough players,PERIOD, to make two for one trades without then adding a BUNCH of scrubs to make up for numbers!
We all sit and go crazy waiting! ;D

Yeah, we'll I'm sure Rondo would love to add Josh Smith too, but that and a dime won't get anyone in a pay toilet.

This is much ado about nothing.
