Clippers contacted Celtics about Kevin Garnett


11:13 AM ET 02.04 | While teams begin to put themselves in position to make some moves by the NBA trade deadline, one of those teams that is making some headlines for their trade inquiries is the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers are looking to add another piece to their championship puzzle as they prepare for a playoff push. The man that they are showing interest in is Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett. In order for any trade to go through, Garnett, who has a no-trade clause, would have to agree to be traded to the Clippers. If he was not interested in the move to Los Angeles, then the interest from either side wouldn't matter one bit.

The Clipps might be interested, but I hope the Celts aren't interested in return. What is their ultimate goal, to have virtually no big men left inside? Year after year, the best we see are undersized 'big men'. Getting rid of Garnett... heck, may as well let Barbosa play center.

Not sure Garnett even wants to be traded, hope he uses his no trade clause and stays put for this year....

KG isn't going anywhere. He is one of the most devoted players in the NBA. If the Celtics ship somehow desides to sink then KG will go down w/ it. Aswell as Paul. Only trouble for Paul is he doesn't have the luxury of a no trade clause!

Makes sense for both parties. Celtics will want to unload that albatross of a contract in Garnett and the Clippers adding him can all but assure them a title run. I mean a front court of blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and Kevin Garnett? That will simply be MONSTROUS!!

Garnett will most certainly waive his no trade clause for a chance at another NBA title and the Clips have the pieces enticing enough to get the deal done. The have the expiring contract of Lamar Odom for starters, pair that with a first round pick that will most likely be VERY LOW once the season draws to a close and they're in business.

Someone in Boston's front office will be fooled into thinking their current win streak means something. Just wait till the trade deadline passes and watch the team slide back into lottery land as they're destined to be.

If I'm ainge I will make my wholesale NOW!!
