One source with knowledge of the NBA's thinking told ESPN.com that the league does not intend to change its stance as expressed by Stern in multiple radio interviews Thursday, meaning that the league would view any subsequent trade agreement between the Celtics and Clippers involving Garnett to be part of the Rivers deal and thus in violation of league rules.
Now, Garnett is a 17 year veteran. I find it unlikely that he wants to participate in a rebuild. But, what teams would he be interested in moving to?
I would think a contending team is his highest priority. I don't know a preference of western or eastern conference team. But, he does have close ties to Thibs.
What kind of trades would entice the Celtics? Would they be interested in Taj as a Garnett replacement?
Do they also look for a deal to move Pierce?
Is KG worth the effort for the Bulls to acquire?
I think it's ideal because KG doesn't play 40 minutes a game anymore. A front court rotation of Boozer, KG, Noah? Let's speculate...
