Two teams battling injuries, the Celtics are 4-0 without Rajon Rondo and the Clippers have lost 6 of their last 8 without Chris Paul. Prior to losing to the Celtics, LA had exploratory talks with Boston about a trade to acquire Kevin Garnett – who has a no-trade clause in his contract, so ultimately he’d make the final call.
According to Sporting News:
Multiple sources tell Sporting News the Los Angeles Clippers are making a push to acquire center Kevin Garnett from the Boston Celtics. Team officials have been talking ahead of Sunday’s game in Boston.
The crux of an offer for Garnett, according to sources, would be based around second-year guard Eric Bledsoe and veteran wing Caron Butler.
