Denver Nuggets trade rumors indicate interest in acquiring Kevin Garnett. These Garnett-Nuggets rumors aren't very interesting to the Boston Celtics, though, not unless Denver is willing to send back significant assets. According to a report from Wednesday (Feb. 6), a no-trade clause owned by the Celtics star is something that Denver won't be able to overcome.
Netting someone like Garnett before the Feb. 21 NBA trade deadline could really help out the Nuggets, but not if the franchise has to give up assets like Ty Lawson to make it happen. There are plenty of additional assets on the deep Nuggets roster, but it could be very tough to send a lot of pieces in a deal like this. It probably doesn't matter, though, because Garnett has indicated a number of times that he doesn't want to leave Boston.
All of this conjecture taking place around the NBA seems pointless if Garnett is going to institute his no-trade clause. Maybe franchises like Denver are hoping that they can convince Garnett that they would be a good destination for him, especially because they have a great shot to go deep into the postseason. Right now, the Celtics are struggling just to keep pace for the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference.
It's clear that these Denver Nuggets trade rumors probably aren't going to play out well and that a Kevin Garnett trade simply isn't going to happen unless the future Hall of Fame players wants one.
