Doc Rivers on Celtics bringing Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to Kevin Durant meetings: "I liked [Clippers'] group better. Brady can't make a shot. I love Brady, he's my guy, but the difference between Brady and Blake [Griffin] and [DeAndre Jordan] — I'm going Blake and DJ in basketball. I was good with that."

Rivers: Pierce remains unsure on 19th season

Clippers coach Doc Rivers says Paul Pierce remains uncertain whether he'll return for a 19th season in the NBA but believes Pierce has something left to contribute.

Doc Rivers has talked with Ray Allen this summer. Does he think he'll play again? "I don't know. I won't talk about what we talked about. I think if Ray was in the right spot he may play. I think Ray wants to golf a lot, too, right now. But Ray is in amazing shape. I don't know how he does that. I didn't know how he does that as a player; I don't know how he does it as a non-player. He's probably in top-5 shape in the NBA. So could Ray play? Absolutely, I believe he could."

Doc Rivers on why he'll encourage Paul Pierce to sign a one-day contract with the Celtics before whenever he does retire: "I think it's important. I think we have to do that. And I think we will. Danny [Ainge] and Mike [Zarren], we've already talked. The day he retires, he's going to retire a Celtic. He has to. Paul's a Celtic. So when he retires he's got to retire as a Celtic. I don't think anyone disagrees with me."

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Doc Rivers on whether he thinks Paul Pierce will retire: "Depends on the day I talk to him. Paul has had the summer, he's gone back and forth. I think he has a right to do that. I really do. And so, you know, Paul didn't have the best year last year. I don't think he wants to go out that way, so I think that's why he's working to try to come back. But he still may change his mind next week. So we just have to wait. I told him if I see him at training camp, I'm assuming he's playing."

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Doc Rivers on those pesky Blake Griffin summer trade rumors: "We knew none of it was true. We figured that was one of you guys starting these rumors here in Boston. I was trying to find out who it was … No, it happens, unfortunately. Blake and CP are free agents [after this season]. Just like last year Oklahoma [City] had to deal with that, now it's our turn."
