The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers are still discussing a trade of Kevin Garnett and Eric Bledsoe, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. But this deal would also include shot-swatting center DeAndre Jordan instead of Caron Butler.
Sources tell Woj that the Celtics and Clippers have been in "regular contact about the possibility." The big hurdle is getting KG to waive the no-trade clause in his contract. That may not be as big of a hurdle since Garnett has a home in Malibu and he's besties with Chauncey Billups.
If the Clippers are willing to deal Bledsoe, the franchise must be certain that Chris Paul will re-sign in the offseason. Otherwise, they'll be making a very Clipper-esque deal, giving up a starting caliber point guard in a trade and then losing their franchise guard in free agency.
A KG trade would mean the Clippers are serious about contending this season. In Beantown, it'd be the beginning of rebuilding gang green (and could also signal that GM Danny Ainge is willing to move Rajon Rondo).
