Celtics Going for Broke, KG Finally Coming?

Multiple sources told ESPN.com on Sunday night that former teammates Kevin McHale and Danny Ainge have revived discussions of a deal that would end Garnett’s 12-season association with Minnesota by sending him to Ainge’s Celtics, with the Wolves getting back two of the assets McHale coveted most last month: Al Jefferson and Theo Ratliff‘s expiring contract.
The deal depends on Garnett backing off his well-chronicled unwillingness to play in Boston. Yet sources indicated late Sunday that Garnett was warming to the idea, raising hopes on both sides that the deal will finally go through.
There are also rumors thrown out there that Rajon Rondo would be involved in this deal. I’m sure there are many Celtics’ fans out there that do not want to see Rondo involved, but I personally wouldn’t be against it if we could sign Brevin Knight. I’m not going to go into this deal much more until it is made official. I wasn’t the biggest fan of moving Jefferson for Garnett, but after trading for Ray Allen, this deal almost had to be made.
People say that a title is good for 10 years, so if this trio could bring us our 17th NBA championship, then I guess I should be happy.
