According to multiple reports, the Boston Celtics and the Clippers have reached an agreement sending head coach Doc Rivers to the Clippers.

The Clippers will send the Celtics a first-round pick to compensate for the Celtics releasing Rivers from his contract. Meanwhile the Clippers and Rivers agreed to a three-year, $21 million contract.

The league will need to approve the deal. Earlier in the week, the NBA vetoed a deal that included forward Kevin Garnett going to the Clippers.
