NBA Trade Rumors: Minnesota Timberwolves, Boston Celtics Talking Kevin Garnett Deal

While it was reported yesterday that the Minnesota Timberwolves may have some interest in bringing back former franchise face, Kevin Garnett, it was somewhat chalked up as a silly rumor.

Apparently, it’s far greater than that.

According to multiple sources in both Boston and Minneapolis, the Celtics and Timberwolves have had discussions about trading Garnett back to his former stomping grounds.

Per ESPN 1500:

According to league sources, Wolves president of operations Flip Saunders has had a conversation with the Celtics about Garnett.

Who initiated the talks, in whom the Celtics might have an interest on the Wolves and whether Garnett would waive his no-trade clause to come to Minnesota are unknown.

Garnett will be due just shy of $12.5 million dollars this coming season with an unguaranteed contract for the 2014-15 season, but it’s unknown as to what Boston would be receiving in return in such a deal.

It’s worth stressing that there is no deal imminent, just that the two sides have talked about a reunion.
