07:14 AM ET 06.26 | My, how quickly the Celtics recent title-run nucleus could be split. Multiple sources told the Daily News [Nets GM Billy King] inquired about Kevin Garnett's desire to join Deron Williams in Brooklyn, but King didn't get an answer while uncertainty surrounds the Celtics. Garnett, 37, has a no-trade clause in his contract, which he vowed not to waive last season. But circumstances changed dramatically in Boston following a first-round playoff loss to the Knicks, with GM Danny Ainge committing to rebuilding and Doc Rivers bolting to the Clippers. A proposed deal that would've sent Garnett to the Clippers with Rivers was blocked by the NBA because it's illegal to package a coach with players.

This could work and he could waive that no trade clause but who would they get back in return?

Let me give it to you straight.

KG is stuck in Boston. Especially after the way he clowned on Ray Ray for leaving.

If he leaves now in search of greener pastures what was all that crap he gave Ray Ray about?

I think he should stay there, unless he wants to be a hypocrite.

I have to agree with both Guam and GhosT on this one...

Next we'll be singing Kumbaya...

Um....no son. It wasn't about Ray leaving! It was about him leaving AND joining the C's bitter rivals.

Ray apparently saw the handwriting on the wall. And now he's got himself another ring.

Isnt brooklyn pretty much in salary cap hell....when the rooskie put that team together, you knew that was your team for the next 4 years....what is KG owed? can the nets afford, and who would they send to boston, who I cant see wanting anyone on that roster, other than maybe brook lopez, who just had his third foot surgery on the the same foot in the last 2 years....dont see this happening

The Nets don't care about going over the cap and will pay any amount over the cap. Trades are the only way they can make the team better. They can't sign any good free agents unless those free agents are willing to play for the minimum...

So as long as Ray Ray left and joined up with some losers, everything would have been fine.

It's good to see Ray Ray had way more sense than that. He upgraded his career and jewelry.
