Well now there is a report Ainge will not confirm the deal as being “done,” as the numerous AP media outlets report…
Yahoo Sports: It was reported earlier Monday that the Celtics would send forward Al Jefferson, swingman Gerald Green, point guard Sebastian Telfair, the expiring contract of center Theo Ratliff and at least one future first-round pick to the Minnesota Timberwolves for one of the league’s biggest superstars.
But Ainge would not confirm the deal.
“(The reports) can speculate all they want,” he said to the newspaper. “I can confirm we are talking, sure. We’re in discussions with (Garnett).”
While I still feel that KG will be eventually headed to the Celtics, I found this part interesting:
“I’m sure we’re one of a few teams that are in discussions with the Timberwolves,” Ainge said.
