Doc Rivers says reports he shot down an opportunity to deal away his son, Austin Rivers, for Carmelo Anthony are pure BS … telling TMZ Sports bluntly, “That’s not true.”

The Clippers honcho was leaving Madeo in Bev Hills Wednesday night when we asked if Chris Paul‘s departure meant it was a “sad day” for the team.

“I don’t know if it’s sad or not,” Rivers said … “We’ll find that out.”

He praised Paul as a “great Clippers” and added, “I wish Chris well.”

We also asked about a report from ESPN anchor Michael Eaves that CP3 left the team upset over issues with Doc … but Rivers shot that down pretty hard too — insisting the two are nothing but cordial.
