Source: League yet to approve Doc Rivers deal


WALTHAM — There is nothing but quiet at the Celtics’ practice facility as the organization awaits the Los Angeles Clippers to reach a contract agreement with Doc Rivers so the deal can be presented to the league office, according to an NBA source.

That source said the league has not approved any deal and the Celtics are in wait-and-see mode as Monday reaches the early evening. The Celtics have yet to cancel their scheduled press conference, which was originally set for noon and the Hall of Fame Room at the Sports Authority Practice Facility has been prepared for a press conference for three days.

The Celtics agreed to release Rivers’ non-compete clause for a Clippers’ first-round pick in 2015. And Rivers apparently agreed to a three-year, $21 million deal with Los Angeles. But that deal is not official and neither is the transaction between the Celtics and Clippers.
