Kevin Garnett Says It’s Too Early To Talk Future

Kevin Garentt is under contract for two more seasons, but this could very easily be the end of the KG era in Boston. He said it’s too early to decide his future, but Garnett made it clear that whether or not the Celtics retain Paul Pierce will be a big part of his decision. Per ESPN: “While Garnett swatted away most inquiries about his future, he spoke strongly about how the organization’s decision on whether to retain Pierce, whose contract is only $5 million guaranteed and could be an amnesty candidate, could play into his status. ‘One of the big reasons I came [to Boston] was because of Paul,’ said Garnett. ‘Obviously, you want to be in a situation where it’s better. I want to make sure that I’m able to always help a team. I want to be in positions to where I’m giving something. I demand a lot of myself, both physically and from a skill level. But I’d be lying to y’all if I said Paul didn’t play into that factor. Like I said, it’s too soon of a conversation for me right now.’”

    The team they have now, if they can find a decent scoring option to put at the 2 (Terry is not that option) they could be quite competitive I think. A guy like Joe Johnson would be good, a reliable scorer to put alongside Rondo in the back court. Pierce and Garnett have too many miles on the clock to handle all the offense themselves.

    Do they have capspace to go after Dwight?
    Imagine a Dwight that would get tutored by KG.

    Oh sure KG, you’re only 37 years old right? Life begins at 40!

    League will miss KG when he’s gone. Can’t believe it’s been almost 18 years since he got drafted.

    Spurs get: Kevin Garnett, 2014 2nd Round Pick
    Celtics get: Tiago Splitter, Boris Diaw, 2015 1st Round Pick

    Lakers get: Kevin Garnett, Brandon Bass, 2013 2nd Round Pick
    Celtics get: Pau Gasol, Antawn Jamison

  • RKJ92

    That’s a steal for the Lakers.. lol, and doubts Spurs would give up Splitter, Diaw and a 2015 1rst for aging Garnett — pffff

  • Caboose

    Honestly though, Tony, Manu, Kawhi, Duncan, and Garnett could probably get a title next year.

  • Shifty

    Except KG has a no trade clause……….so yeah

  • danpowers

    lebron james and kevin durant hardly disagree

  • danpowers

    i dont think so. STAT will either get something close to healthy and play out his contract with the knicks or will get hurt again severely and retire.

  • danpowers

    id love a STAT for joe johnson trade. in 2013/14 we’d see the first nba team ever running 100% of its offense through isos

    Not like Danny hasn’t tried to improve the team with trades over the last few years, as opposed to watching the C’s get older. Here is a list of some of the players he has tried to get: David West, Carlos Boozer, Chris Paul, OJ Mayo, Rudy Gay, Caron Butler, JJ Reddick, Anderson Varejao. None of those worked in the other teams favor. Instead they got nothing but busts and traded away an important part of their defense in Kendrick Perkins. Only exceptions have been an inconsistent Jeff Green and Brandon Bass. My advice to Danny would be to let go of Chris Wilcox, trade Courtney Lee back to Houston for 50 cents on the dollar and draft another rebounding machine to add size up front, in case Sullinger has more DNPs due to his back. Roll the dice with a healthy Rondo and do one more year with KG and Paul.
