And that's assuming Tuesday's reports of the Timberwolves' interest in trading for Brooklyn Nets shooting guard MarShon Brooks have any substance.
According to the New York Daily News,Minnesota and...

The Nets need depth at point guard, while the Wolves have a surplus in JJ Barea and Luke Ridnour.

Kevin Garnett may or may not become available, but the Brooklyn Nets have gotten a head start and are reportedly interested in the 15x All-Star. With Rivers’ departure from the Celtics, the future of Garnett and Paul Pierce becomes uncertain, especially since KG would have waived his no-trade clause to join Rivers in LA if the NBA had not blocked the proposed deal.
With Doc Rivers off to Los Angeles and the Celtics now staring a rebuild square in the pupils, the NBA’s vultures are starting to land and pick at the Boston’s former championship carcass.
Knowing full well that Kevin Garnett’s loyalty to Boston may be eroding now, teams are going to start inquiring about KG’s openness for a move. First up, the Brooklyn Nets.
