Celtics, Clippers seriously discussing mega-deal. Seriously.

The Celtics and Clippers had some trade talks that fizzled at the trade deadline, but things are heating up again between the two teams, according to numerous reports. And now things are getting even crazier. With Doc Rivers not wanting to oversee a possible rebuild in Boston and the futures of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in question, the three of them are eyeing a move to the Clippers if things don't work out with the Celtics.

Rivers still has three years left on his contract and has a non-compete clause in there, so Celtics president Danny Ainge would certainly ask for hefty compensation in return. Kevin Garnett has a no-trade clause, but he's reportedly willing to waive it if he joined Doc in L.A. Pierce's $15M-plus contract is only $5M guaranteed for next season, and it has been unclear what the Celtics plan to do with him.

The Clippers could possibly pull all of this off by offering up Eric Bledsoe, DeAndre Jordan, Caron Butler, draft picks and maybe another small piece. There's also the outside chance that the Clippers work out a deal for Doc and KG, and then hope that the Celtics simply waive Pierce. If that happened, L.A. could offer the MLE with the hope that Pierce takes less money since he'd already be making $5M from Boston.

So what do y'all think about this? Would be pretty crazy if it happened. Here's the latest from ESPN on the situation. You can also follow SB Nation's StoryStream on the situation.
