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.
