How weird it must be for Austin Rivers. The son of the fomer Celtics coach Doc Rivers is now a Boston Celtics player, part of a three team trade between the C's, Memphis and New Orleans.

Tonight the Celts host River's former team, the New Orleans Pelicans, at the Garden.

Rivers and Tayshaun Prince(from Memphis) will be in Celtics green.

The question is - for how long?

Various NBA reports have both players being traded away by GM Danny Ainge. Some of those reports have Austin Rivers traded to the LA Clippers to join his father.

What the C's wanted most from the three way trade? A future Memphis first round draft pick.
