Doc Rivers's "intense dislike" for Rajon Rondo is the primary reason the coach wants to leave the Boston Celtics, according to Chris Sheridan of SheridanHoops.com.

The feud between Rivers and his point guard led to an incident during a team meeting in the locker room in which Rondo cursed at Rivers, who responded by trying to fight Rondo before the "fracas" was broken up, a source close to the team told Sheridan.

The report does not specify when the fight occurred.

Reports on Friday said Rivers is no longer pursuing the Los Angeles Clippers' head coaching position after the teams discussed a trade. The Celtics will resolve the situation on Monday, according to the same report.

Rivers and Rondo have clashed in the past. Their rocky relationship was the reason behind the Celtics putting Rondo on the trading block in each of the past two seasons.
