Beyond The Buzzer:
Validity surrounding trade talks between the Clippers and Celtics was shot down in recent weeks, however it is being reported again as the deadline looms. The Clippers are willing to part ways with Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan in order to acquire Kevin Garnett, which they believe will give them a greater chance at competing for a championship this season.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo! Sports:
The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers have been discussing a deal to trade forward Kevin Garnett for guard Eric Bledsoe and center DeAndre Jordan, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
There are differing factions within the Celtics and Clippers on the prudence of the deal, but the two teams have been in regular contact about the possibility, sources said.
Nevertheless, the biggest hurdle could ultimately center on Garnett’s willingness to waive his no-trade clause and accept a deal to the Clippers.

Much was made of the supposed “beef” between Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony earlier this season.

STAYING IN BEANTOWN
Kevin Garnett has been mentioned in trade conversations, but the veteran All-Star forward says he will not waive his no-trade clause.
Just five weeks ago, Carmelo Anthony hated Kevin Garnett. We all know the story; Anthony and Garnett were going at it in a tightly contested game back on Jan. 8. It got chippy and the two started jawing and before long, Garnett went below the belt like he normally does and allegedly said that Anthony’s wife “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.”
Now I’m not married but if...
Apparently ganging up on Craig Sager with Carmelo Anthony Saturday at All-Star practice wasn’t enough. In a sideline interview with Sager during the All-Star game Sunday, KG clowned the TNT reporter’s attire (photos) again:

I love how they keep on wanting Bolt to give props to other teams and players, but it's all about Kevin Garnett and the Celtics for the world's fastest man.
Big thanks to Celtics Lifer Tia Compenser for the video tip.
As it often happens with trades in the NBA, it’s not so much about the actual players who might be traded as it is contingent on which player outside of the trade talk is staying or leaving a team.
