The Los Angeles Clippers have contacted the Boston Celtics about a potential trade surrounding Kevin Garnett, according to sources.

The two teams were talking ahead of Sunday's game against each other.

The Clippers' offer could include Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler.

Theres so much Garnette could teach Jordan and Griffen, not to mention how much better it would make a team thats already stacked.

how long is Paul hurt?

Boston has rondo, why they need Bledsoe? Boston has Pierce, why they need Buttface? Clippers has good frontcourt, they don't need KG. Duck

Asset managemet. If Boston moves KG at all, rule #1 is get the best asset, because it means they are rebuilding. They don't have to keep Bledsoe longterm. The point is to get some value, since KG has a no trade clause a can limit the teams Boston sends him to, if KG allows himself to be traded at all.

Buttface is salary filler to make the deal work. The Celts could always move him next year, as an expiring. Also, if the Celts are looking to move KG, then Pierce is probably moved too.

The Clippers have a good frontcourt, but D-Jordan is overrated and showed last year that he could not be trusted in crunch time, on either end. During last year's playoffs against Memphis, the Clippers frequently played Reggie Evans and Kenyon Martin over Deandre, for defensive purposes. And defense is somehting Deandre is supposed to be good at!!! That's just defense. Jordan is pretty crappy on offense. KG would be a substantial 2-way upgrade for key minutes late in the game.

Just my opinions and guesses.

I can see this happening if the Clippers trade their expiring's. I can't see the Clippers keeping both DJ and Garnett though. They both have similar contracts and I doubt they would have either coming off the bench for that kind of money. Then again the Clippers are playing DJ bench minutes at the moment anyway.

Bledsoe as a starting PG in the East won't really translate into a lot of wins, but he'll be someone to watch given control of a team for sure. My fantasy team approves

If they can do this without giving up too much, this would put the clips as the favourites in my mind.

Having KG/Griffin and Odom/DJ off of the bench would be amazing. The Clippers already play great defence with their current lineup, if KG was added into the lineup they'd be even more scary, not to mention that their halfcourt offence would never be questioned again. Its a no brainer to try to win the title for the next 2-3 years. They literally are one player away, and if its not KG, they should be going after a legit starting 2 guard. They cant keep relying on Billups to eventually come back.

I don't think they need a legit starting 2 guard.....we can't expect them to have the perfect team. I think Green, Billups, Butler, Crawford, Hill, Barnes and Odom are more than enough at the wings. Remember Dallas won without a legit starter there with Terry coming off the bench. Crawford is just as good this year then Terry was that year.

Are they trying to shed salary... boston?

Rondo, Howard rebuild on the fly?

Man I wouldn't give up Butler and Bledsoe for a guy who could retire tomorrow, with all due respect to Garnett. Clippers would be getting ripped off big time.

CBS sports says multiple media outlets report that the Celtics have no interest.

This would probably fuck with the Clippers team morale. DeAndre is their glue guy and Blake's best friend.
