Just when you thought the long-running Clippers-Celtics coach/trade saga was over, the Clippers have reached out to the Celtics again league sources told Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski.

The previous salvo of trade reports had the teams discussing a deal that would send Celtics coach Doc Rivers and veteran Kevin Garnett to the Clippers for DeAndre Jordan and first-round picks. Other versions had talks ending when the Clippers ‘refused to budge’ on Boston’s attempt to land Jordan for Garnett and two first-round draft picks.

Bill Simmons of ESPN.com tweeted that Clippers guard Chris Paul is the catalyst for his team attempting to resume talks.

Stay tuned.

My God they are worse than teen age girls shopping at Macys. Either do the deal or don't.

I do NOT have much faith in Chris Paul's talent in the playoffs. He is just like Chris Bosh, a regular season guy!

The Don should trade Chris Paul to Boston for Rajon Rondo an two first round picks,    if i'm Blake Griffin I would be tired of his crying.  Los Angeles with ,Blake, Rondo, an Coach Hollins,  an a few tweaks will be super. Now we really know who got Vinnie fired.

@R.R. Why would Boston make that trade?   FYI, this is not fantasy basketball.
