The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers are playing Sunday, but the most interesting news (if you can call it that) is off the court. The Sporting News is reporting that the Clippers are offering Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler in exchange for Kevin Garnett in what would be a blockbuster trade.
I'm not sure I buy this. For one thing, I can't imagine the Clippers trading Bledsoe without assurances that Chris Paul will re-sign with the club after this season.
Second, would KG approve of a trade? The Celtics star has a no-trade clause in his contract, so he could scuttle a potential deal. Or is it more likely, as ESPN's Marc Stein suggested, that the Celtics would ship Paul Pierce home to LA?
This all comes down to what Danny Ainge wants to do and if KG will allow it.
