Interesting quote from this ESPN article:
"Sources say the Clippers and Celtics, to push the trade through, will have to convince the league office that the deals were not contingent upon each other. According to NBA rules, side agreements or contingencies are prohibited in any trade or free-agent signing. Rules also prohibit coaches from being traded; teams can convey cash or draft picks as compensation to get a coach under contract released from those obligations."
So i guess that mean a team could trade draft picks to get a coach from a different team (I didn't know that). I wanted to throw a couple of questions out there because I'm curious about the response:
Is there anyone in the 2013 Draft that would be worth "trading" for Thibs?
Would you "trade" Thibs for a rookie Eric Gordon?
Here's Bill Simmons' trade value column. Imagine you could get a magical draft pick that would allow you to have a rookie version of any player in the NBA. Where would Thibs land on the trade value column?
