I like this deal better:

Doc Rivers tells the Celtics that he would like to bypass his final year of the contract and coach the Clippers. KG and Pierce tell Danny Ainge that they plan on retiring if they don't get traded to Clippers. Danny Ainge calls Clippers and gets DeAndre Jordan, Eric Bledsoe, and Caron Butler (expiring contract) for KG and Pierce. Additionally, we go after OJ Mayo, Nikola Pekovic and Jarrett Jack in free agency. Here's what we've got going forward for next season:

PG: CP3, Jarrett Jack

SG: OJ Mayo, Jamal Crawford, Billups

SF: Paul Pierce, Matt Barnes, Grant Hill

PF: Blake Griffin, Ronny Turiaf

C: Kevin Garnett, Nikola Pekovic, Ryan Hollins

This is a championship contender.

I find this interesting to be quite honest. I wouldn't put it past Chris Paul to demand that they go after Dwight Howard. D12 was very complimentary of the Clippers this season. He mention on few occasions how he liked the camaraderie and the chemistry. There is also the prospect of him and CP3 MAKING history rather than just being part of history (playing for the Lakers). As controversial as it is, the only way I get rid of Blake is if Dwight joins the team. The best part about all this is Doc Rivers being the new coach.You can also replace Pierce for some other pieces since he can be bought out and still be able to sign him as a free agent.

Here's what I would propose:

Griffin,DJ,Bled,Butler for KG, Courtney Lee and Avery Bradley. Boston would then amnesty Butler.

The Clippers would go out and sign Dwight Howard. Re-sign Barnes.

The lineup could look something like this

Starters: Paul, Lee, Pierce, Garnett, Howard

Bench: Crawford,Barnes, Bradley

Worst case scenario : 1st round bounce

Best case scenario: win the West and continue to build around CP3 and Dwight Howard

Really? How so, aside from losing Blake?

Perennial DPOY/ leading Rebounder in Howard

Shooter in Lee. Perimeter Defender in Bradley. 1 year of KG&Pierce AND Rivers on the side line doesn't sound too bad. In fact, it sounds more consistent that a lineup including Blake. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't want to see Blake leave but if the organization is bent on keeping CP3, Howard doesn't sound too far fetched. Obviously there's something that interests both clubs since rumors have been brewing since the deadline. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

The trade itself is stinky but ultimately to land Howard.

It's offensive that the media would continue to talk about this trade as if it is a legit option...I feel like it is just because we are the clippers, they feel we would do something so dumb. What a joke

We lose literally ALL our youth for a promising wing and a 1-year rental of two old geezers. You're also assuming that Dwight would take a $30,000,000 pay cut to play with another bunch of washed-up HOF'ers, that Boston could amnesty Butler, which they couldn't, that they're prepared to let their championship coach go and that he wants to move to L.A. Doc is not even sure he wants to coach ANYWHERE anymore. Putting coaches into a player trade is a new level of idiocy... notice there's only one source for the rumor, and everyone else it calling it absurd.

Our F.O. wouldn't even entertain Bled and Jordan for Garnett because it was mortgaging the future... there is no way on earth that they give up Blake to rent ANYONE.

We are not getting Dwight Howard. People need to put that idea to bed.

Getting Howard = to getting Jackson to be our next coach. Not happening. Ever.

One thing I can tell EVERYONE here for sure - Blake Griffin is not going anywhere in the near future. I doubt we trade him for anything other than LeBron or Durant as he is a ticket-seller and a face of the franchise. This is a marketing gem that our lovely owner won't let go for a bunch of old age pensioners!

Not enough salary to make a KG/Pierce trade work

Feel free on explaining why Pekovic would be a backup?

wish we had the $$$ to do something like this. Pekovic and Mayo are going to get paid more than we can offer and Jack will probably be getting $6mm plus

This is not realistic. Salaries alone don't match. Clippers will be over the salary cap on four players... Blake $17, CP3 $18, Pierce $15, and KG $11 that's a total of $61

Dream on Boston! Blake Griffin is not going anywhere. There'll be a statue of him in front of Staples Center before he goes.

I wonder why Boston was initially interested in Bledsoe in the first place, they already have Bradley who's pretty similar

Because Boston is getting way too old, similar to the Lakers, so Boston know's that Pierce and Garnett are basically out the door. Why not get something rather than nothing.

Trading blake with his upside ( along of him being a gym rat, only in his third full year) for two guys almost at an end is downright stupid.

I dont understand why people are still bringing this up. it makes no sense.

we need to thnk smart. mabe dj and ebled for afflalo and vicevic??

Try to get pekovic?? Gortat?? (AFTER trading DJ)

A way to get iggy, money wise not possible.

Maybe a jose calderon?? after trading ebled(if cp stays, or if cp leaves)

Find a way to STEAl batum(impossible), george(not happening), chandler (denver ???)

A shooter Redick, korver.

A stopper TONY ALLEN

Rumor flying around that Pierce is out in Boston. Lets dump Caron and Lamar, sign Pierce, trade DJ and Bled to Orlando for Vucevic and AA. We can start Paul, Aflalo, Pierce, Vucevic and Blake, Vucevic is PERFECT for us Rebounds and can shoot.

How much would Pierce's contract be if he opt out next year? I'm thinking around $8 mil if he wants to win a chip again.

Pierce will probably be had for MLE considering his age and decline. I would sign him, if the Celtics are willing to give up KG for DJ + our 1st, I believe KG will be more open to waive his trade clause to us. We are mortgaging the future for a chance to win now.
