Kevin Garnett Says It’s Too Early To Talk Future

by May 04, 2013

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.'”
