The Los Angeles Clippers, Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns agreed to a three-team trade on Thursday that sent guard Austin Rivers to play for his father in Los Angeles.

Rivers joins the Clippers, a team coached by Doc Rivers, and will become the first son to play for his father in NBA history.

The deal included guard Reggie Bullock going from the Clippers to the Suns, forward Shavlik Randolph moving from the Suns to the Celtics and Boston also getting guard Chris Douglas-Roberts and a future second-round draft pick from the Clippers.

Bullock averaged 2.5 points in 25 games for the Clippers this season.

“Reggie Bullock is a talented young player we have liked for a while,” Suns general manager Ryan McDonough said. “He shoots the ball very well and he has the potential to be a good perimeter defender.”

According to ESPN.com, the Clippers will waive guard Jordan Farmar to free up roster space for the deal. The Boston Herald reported that the Celtics are expected to release Douglas-Roberts to create a trade exception of $2.4 million.

Rivers joined the Celtics on Monday after a three-team deal with Memphis and New Orleans that allowed Boston to send Jeff Green to the Grizzlies. In 35 games this season, Rivers is averaging 6.8 points and 2.5 assists.
