Is a Kevin Garnett trade from the Boston Celtics to the Los Angeles Clippers in the works? If the latest buzz is to be believed, that is exactly the case. Sporting News shared the details available so far on Feb. 3.
Sporting News says that several sources have told them that the Clippers are pushing to make a deal in a Kevin Garnett trade. This would seem to indicate that the Clippers are serious about winning, but would the Celtics be willing to make the trade? Garnett has a no-trade clause built into his contract, so he would have to be willing to make the change before anything could move forward.
The Kevin Garnett trade rumors are said to center around making a deal that would involve wing Caron Butler and guard Eric Bledsoe, sources indicate. The trade deadline is 3 p.m. E.T. on Feb. 21, so there is still a bit of time for the details to fall into place on this one. Garnett still has two years left on his contract, so the Celtics would be taking on a sizable salary for him in this trade. He is 37 now, but is slated to play in the NBA All-Star game later this month so he clearly still has some quality play left to offer.
Do you think the Kevin Garnett trade would be a worthwhile deal for both teams?
