Kevin Garnett to Boston – “DONE DEAL?”

KG to Boston. ‘Nuff said. Has the “pipe” has officially broken?

burst-pipe.jpgStar Tribune: Kevin Garnett’s long tenure with the Timberwolves appears to be over.

The Boston Celtics were close to completing a deal for the Timberwolves’ All-Star forward this afternoon. The Associated Press quoted an unnamed Celtics official saying a deal was imminent, but not yet complete. The AP also said a conference call announcing the deal might come later today.

Garnett is due $23 million next season and would get a 15 percent raise if he is traded, so both sides would have to work to match contracts. Garnett has been with the Wolves for 12 seasons, the longest current span that one NBA player has with his team.

The trade is likely to send forward Al Jefferson, swingman Gerald Green, point guard Sebastian Telfair, center Theo Ratliff and at least one high draft pick to Minnesota

—–

The Herald also reported the Celtics and Garnett, 31, have reached an agreement in principle on a contract extension. It appears Garnett is willing to forego the opt-out in his current deal for next summer and cast his lot with Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and the Celtics.

    This is what happens when you guys relatively believe KG was always gonnna be a Laker.

    you know why Boston is getting KG? because they never wanted to part with Al Jefferson in the first place while we would give up the farm. this site should have been GetJermaine all along…. don’t tell me it’s gonna be GetTimduncan next… you guys are a complete mess.

    KG to Lakers was dying out at least 2-3 weeks ago. so im really not surprised. logically, lakers wouldve been the right team for him. but i guess the owners just wanted to keep it a celtic thing. i seriously do not think boston is gonna become some kind of a threat over there at the east. so with that said, back to the drawing board for LA, move on, and make stuff happen. KG…good luck, but too bad. you couldve had it all here in Hollywood.

  • TheComeBacKid

    I blame a lot of people for this happening. I blame Mitch Kupchak and Kevin McHale. I also blame Fatty and Cyrus for not trying hard enough. I’ll also blame Fred A. for putting up lame posts.

    In all seriousness, we tried, it didn’t happen. The best thing we can hope for is that he doesn’t sign an extension with the Celtics, and opts out at the end of the year, and comes to us then. So, looks like we’ll be doing this again next summer.

  • http://hzmdesigns.com hZm

    I look forward to removing KG from the top banner as soon as he hold up a Celtics jersey.

  • nba analyst

    Lil K…while you are forgetting about KG, forget about Artest while you’re at it. Sacramento isn’t going to trade him within the division, let alone the Western Conference. Sacramento isn’t going to take the crap off the Laker roster….realize that the only guys with any value are Odom and Bynum (and Kobe!?!)

    Get Artest for Kwame and Farmer….heck, why don’t you suggest that Portland trade Greg Oden to the Lakers for those guys….or Seattle trade Durant for them. Maybe Phoenix will take Farmar and Kwame for Steve Nash and Amare Stoudamire.

  • LakerNation1

    i knew he wasnt gonna come to LA. but im not upset bc i wouldve been crying if he went to phoenix. but hes in boston now, and i care less bc boston is a terrible team…

    and the only way we can get kg next year if he opts out is if the lakers do well this upcoming season. we need to show him we got the guns, and i believe we do.

    The Legion of Frustrated Old Losers.

    Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and now KG

    “Mc.Hell” has controlled KG’s BBL life from day one and now he dictates where KG must go. It’s just so hard to believe how weak KG is. I just have a hard time to believe KG is letting MC.Hell throwing him around like a piece of meat. Maybe it’s good that we didn’t get KG.

    Finally, Kevin Garnett is showing his real face; A weakling who let “Mc.Hell” do with him whatever he wants. KG was drafted in 1995 by Boston. For 12 years he’s been trying to win, he has the skills but he lacks the determination and mental force. I truly don’t see KG getting anywhere with the Celtics. He has decided to play with couple of players who have won nothing important in their entire career:
    The 32 years old Ray Allen, except some 3 point shooting contest, has not seen any awards.
    The 30 years old Paul pierce, except All-NBA Third Team 2002-03, has been only dreaming of any noticeable award.
    Kevin Garnett, 31: After 12 years with Wolves, has also no record of success. He made it to conference finals in 03 to get eliminated by the Lakers. He played in allstar games many times and was MVP once but never advanced beyond that.

    KG passed on the best opportunity of his life, to play under the shadow of the greatest player on the planet, Kobe Bryant. It’s so unfortunate to see KG throwing his career in the toilette in going to Boston, playing with 2 other losers who have absolutely no record of achievement.

    This is the true face KG, Great player without ambitions and determinations to win, joining the legion of “old” frustrated loser.

    That was pretty harsh Cyrus, but you can make an argument that those guys never had an opportunity like this. Pierce only had walker, ray allen who the hell knows, and KG went far with sprewell and alien head. In my opinion, Boston screwed their future up and KG is taking a huge chance. How these guys will fill up their roster is beyond me, one injury and you can kiss them goodbye.

    very true but gilbert is the only big star free agent next season. at least with all star caliber and the ability to hold a team.

    This site was more than a garnett site, so it’s cool to keep around. How about GETBETTER.com, then you can post all the chatter and rumors while the fans wait for the team to get better.

    As for all of this talk, I say we do stay under the cap. Screw what kobe says, if the man is not all the way for the lakers, then so be it. If we stay under the cap we can get better help (post kwame) and if kobe leaves we can sign more talent too (arenas!). We’ll see.

  • lakerman34

    WOW!

    I don’t know what to say.
    Hopefully Garnett doesn’t sign an extension? (What are the chances that he doesn’t).

    We HAVE to get JO. I hope the Celts SUCK this year. And ditto to the TWolves.

    But, in all honesty, KG wants to win, and I think his new team can easy make it to the finals next year where they will be decimated by a Western Conference powerhouse. Maybe just MAYBE KG is asking for a trade to Boston so he can get to LA? Think about it, he doesn’t sign a extension, says “I never wanted to go to Boston, trade me,” and the Celtics want him out of the east, trade him back west (to the Lakers and Celts) and by this time, Bynum is a monster and LO is more consistent, they BEG for a trade, and we tell THEM KG isn’t enough.

    Wishful thinking.

    Ironic that the historical archrivals of LA get the one player we have been dying for. This trade will I think be moot for the celtics. Yes they have Allen, Pierce, and now KG – but I really don’t feel that this group will mesh. Ray Allen is in the last throws of his career. Pierce is a scorer at best. KG will now find him self on a team that underachieves and even if they do make the finals will not be able to beat any team out of the west.

    Silo….you’re confirming what I said….the Lakers didn’t have the assets to satisfy Minnesota. Young talent….where? Not on the Laker roster. Farmar? Are you kidding…..guys like him are a dime a dozen…he isn’t a difference maker. And Bynum, for better or worse, is not a superstar at this point. Someday, maybe…..but it is a risk to make a bet on Bynum when he is the best asset in the deal.

    The only fault the Lakers FO is that they didn’t have the mojo on the roster to get it done. The trade for Kwame is a killer here….imagine how much easier it would be to move Caron Butler instead of Kwame. You can blame Mitch for anything except the previous deals that limited the teams’ ability to bring in a KG in a megadeal.

  • getgasol

    All right guys, let’s sort this out…

    I’m just as bummed as everyone else on this site that it looks eminent that KG ain’t coming to LA. But a while back here on GetGarnett.com there was an article where a fan talked to KG in person and KG refused to answer to any questions or comments concerning the Lakers, but as soon as someone else yelled out “Go ‘Sota!” KG said “Yeah! That’s what I’m talkin’ about!” Once I heard that I knew that if that source was reliable, KG doesn’t want to come to LA and that dream is over.

    That being said, all hope is not lost. I say Fish was a great add, and holding onto Mihm was a good move. If we can get either JO or Pau Gasol without giving up Odom, we’re in pretty good shape. In fact…

    Kobe JO Odom > Kobe KG?
    Kobe P.Gasol Odom > Kobe KG?
    maybe.

    Not only that, if we can get JO or Gasol without losing Odom, we may be a contender and maybe can land Webber. Not too shabby.

    I have a feeling Brian Shaw and the Lakers front office are already working on this.

    If that’s true the Lakers front office is as stupid as everyone say they are. And I was giving them the benefit of the doubt and backing them up. Until right now.

    KG is EVERY BIT worth Odom and Bynum. Mitch and Buss get your stupid asses on the phone and pull the trigger on that one immediately!

  • mlkg721

    Oh well, I aint trippin too much. Celtics stick together and they weren’t tryin to deal with the lakers anyway. Plus boston ahd more talent, Jefferson is mor proven than bynum, even though I beleieve that Bybum wiil be the better player. I just pray that things come together for us. And i want kobe to have a MONSTER game against boston this year. Hey, maybe this will spark the old rivalry up again. i theink the Garnett, Allen, and Pierce can be a good trio for 2 years, 3 ywars max. The easy is weak, and theeirinside out game will be ridiculous. The lakers just have to hope to stay healthy and improve. I think this trade might motivate Kobe.
