Provided he does not retire, a revitalized Kevin Garnett will be in demand once the season ends. Count New Jersey as one of the interested teams:
According to the New York Daily News, the Nets, who have about $8 million in cap space this summer assuming they announce Kris Humphries' rights, are targeting Kevin Garnett and Ersan Ilyasova. Talk about a consolation prize, huh? The Nets' first priority is to try and re-sign Deron Williams, but that's not going to happen unless a couple names join him in Brooklyn. Garnett is certainly a big name, but he'll be 36 next season and is on borrowed time with his knees.
Doc Rivers is on record saying he wants KG back in Boston next season.
"Oh yeah, absolutely. We want him back," Rivers said. "I think it will come down to if he wants to play or not. But, you know, who knows? So many games and so many things can happen. Being around this as long as I have I know it is very emotional how the season ends. And a ...

After the Boston Celtics - Utah Jazz game, Kevin Garnett was asked about how the Jazz were able to come back from an 18 point deficit and tie the game. KG's reply?

If the embedded player isn'...

Kevin Garnett's contract is set to expire after this season, meaning he'll be free to sign anywhere. And while many Celtics fans would love to have him back in Green, other teams will likely make a strong push for the veteran power forward. One such team is the New Jersey Nets. According to the New York Daily News, the Nets are targeting Garnett and Ersan Ilyasova (currently...
BOSTON -- Kevin Garnett hears all the words that are used to describe him, and he knows what they mean. "I hear you all calling me old," Garnett said. "I hear you calling me 'older.' Weathered. Whatever. It doesn't take a lot to motivate me, man. I'm motivated." Since the day Garnett arrived in Boston in 2007, the fiery forward has been constantly...
Kevin Garnett was recently asked his thoughts on his upcoming return to "Sota" and here's what he had to say...
"It’s always special to come back to true fans and your foundation, but as far as that franchise, I have nothing positive to say. So I’ll just let it be that. I think Kevin Love's playing at a high level, I think he’s rejuvenated the city...
I absolutely loved the effort last night by Kevin Garnett, especially the moves in the paint.
After the jump, my favorite play - the fake, drive and dunk on Mullens.
"Scrape him off the ceiling..."

After trading away anyone of substance from their roster at the deadline and firing their coach shortly after, the Portland Trail Blazers have reopened their search for a general manager.
I know what you're thinking. Big whoop. Good for them. They're 3,000 miles away. What does that have to do with the Celtics?
According to The Oregonian, one person that Portland...
On the second night of a back-to-back, against the lowly Charlotte Bobcats, during Boston’s fourth game in five days, Kevin Garnett played 34 minutes and Brandon Bass stayed on the court for 40. Greg Stiemsma, who began the season as Boston’s 15th man, earned 20 minutes off the bench, and no other Celtics big man played significant time, mostly because Doc Rivers trusts no...
