Default KG for Bledsoe & Butler?

The #Clippers have contacted the #Celticsabout Kevin Garnett. Offer would include Caron Butler and Beldsoe.

Would that put DeAndre on the bench or would KG be coming off the bench?

F*ck NO

Celtics are already having a better version of Bledsoe in Bradley. If they move KG or Pierce, I hope they get back a big or a wing player!

The Clips want KG? Seems redundant.

Butler is washed up and the Celts already have a better version of Bledsoe in Bradley.


Stupid rumor.

KG off the bench but still more minutes/game than Deandre.

Lets not forget KG's no-trade clause. I don't see him waiving that for a deal where he becomes a bench player, even for a contender.

I highly doubt KG would be a bench player, KG would become the Clippers center, DJ would go back to the bench.

If Boston wants to screw over the Lakers , Heat and an assortment of other contenders while at the same time getting low price decent pieces. They can get the Toronto 1st as well.

Boston is taking back Perkins...yea...I know...but you're getting Orton,Lamb,Jones and a first. Give them another pick if necessary. I don't think I need to go into how much KG would add to the team.

You might as well hand the trophy to OKC if that goes down.

A $10 million reserve? DJ's activity around the rim is sort of a big part of their offensive scheme, isn't it? You wanna throw the Clips' chemistry into whack like that going down the stretch? Just seems like weird trade.

As much as I love KG it's weird for both sides. From Celtics POV it's a PG till Rondo is back, long time backup or trade asset in Bledsoe who fits in with their defensive system. Butler though would be an 8 mill a year bench piece and the opposite of what they will want for a rebuild. For the Clippers KG is a huge boost at center but then we have an unhappy, 10 mill a year bench piece. Not to mention KG is 36 or so and will maintain a high level of play 2 years max. I mean he already almost retired last summer.

Perk is of little use without KG there. The Toronto pick would entice me more if this draft class wasn't so subpar.

Clippers need to do whatever they can to solidify their chances to at least make the finals so that CP3 will stay.

I find it weird that even during their winning streak he didn't re sign
