Celtics agree to acquire Garnett for four players, draft pick

Their is an AP article floating around claiming this trade has been agreed upon. Also, a press conference could be scheduled today to announce it. Sounds like it is just about official. Kevin Garnett to Boston.

CBS Sportsline: Kevin Garnett is leaving Minnesota after the Boston Celtics agreed to acquire the All-Star forward in a multiplayer trade with the Timberwolves, a Celtics official told the Associated Press on Monday.

Among the players who could be headed to Minnesota are forward Al Jefferson, guard Sebastian Telfair, swingman Gerald Green and center Theo Ratliff, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been completed. The official also said the Timberwolves would get at least one draft choice.

The teams still had some things to clarify with the players’ contracts, but the official said that would not keep the Celtics from acquiring Garnett, although there could be a change in the players ticketed for the Timberwolves.

There was a chance that a conference call announcing the trade would be held Monday, the official said.

    …its time to get JO and keep LO, Mitch better, NO he HAS TO make a deal that keep Lamar,Kobe,Javaris and get JO…so heres my idea:

    Trade: Bynum,Kwame,Sasha,Farmar,Aaron McKie S&T, 2008 & 2010 pick for J.O.

    Sign: Webber to veteran’s minimum.

    LINEUP:

    Fisher/Javaris/Sun Yue???
    Kobe/Mo Evans/Coby Karl???
    Lamar/Luke/
    JO/Vlade/Cook
    Mihm/Webber/Ronny

    Well i just wasted some of my time here for nothin. I guess its time to shut this thing down

  • nba analyst

    Nice try darkice….Indiana isn’t going to be interested in all the crap you think Mitch can unload on them.

    Larry Bird is quite content to keep O’Neal. The idea, floated in these parts that they “have” to move him is unfounded. Bird will hold out for Odom and Bynum and nothing less.

    And the Lakers should not make that deal.

    @mj2kb, imagine if what you said really happened.
