Doc Rivers Wanted Garnett to Join Clippers


Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers told ESPN.com on Friday that he was willing to bring Kevin Garnett to Los Angeles to join the Clippers but that the 40-year-old wanted to retire.

Rivers, who once declared Garnett his favorite player to coach, said he has spoken with Garnett about Minnesota’s decision to orchestrate a buyout for the 15-time All-Star, who announced his farewell Friday. “He doesn’t want to play,” Rivers said. “I’m sure he won’t play again. I think he realized, ‘Why am I doing this?’
