    Do you think the celtics got screwed in the Doc Rivers trade?

    One of the guys Boston wanted to get from the Clippers was Eric Bledsoe in exchange for Doc Rivers but LA said no. But now the Clippers trade Eric Bledsoe to the Suns. I mean wtf. I know I know I'm probably over reacting.

    Reason he wasn't dealt was the player for coach issue and LAC wanted to keep him as a traded chip to acquire a SG.

    A 1st for Doc is golden especially for a guy that was ready to walk away back to broadcasting.

    Getting a 1st round pick for a coach that did not want to be here was a steal

    As a couple other people in this thread mentioned you're not allowed to trade players for coaches so the Celtics made a great deal here the only way I could do better is if we've gotten the clippers 2014 first round pick but still amazing deal

    To me that's a stupid rule. I mean think about it a team can get a winning coach, but the other team can't get a good to really good player? All because of some stupid rule? All well.

    The reason is, trading a player for a coach would impact the teams money towards the salary cap.

    If the Clippers had traded Bledsoe for Doc Rivers the Clips salary cap figure would have been reduced by $1.8 M AND they would have gotten Rivers to boot. The Celtics would have been taking on salary AND losing their coach. Double win for Clips. Double loss for C's although they would have received Bledsoe.

    The only way a player for coach trade works is if coaches salaries are tied to the cap.

    So basically trades are 50/50 no matter which way you look at it.
