Kevin Garnett is not planning to retire and will reportedly return to Boston next season on a three-year, $34 million deal.
Danny Ainge spoke to the media the day before the NBA draft on a variety of topics about the Celtics' future. Also, fan favorite Mickael Pietrus speaks to Molly McGrath about his offseason surgery and summer (video after the jump).
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Kevin Garnett is staying with the Celtics. The Herald has learned this morning that Garnett has informed the club he will be back.
The 36-year-old considered retirement, but ultimately decided to return for an...
When Danny Ainge and the Celtics finally pull the trigger on making a draft pick during Thursday night's draft -- wherever that may be -- the team will be making a big step in a new direction. With the future of key pieces like Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen in doubt, the Celtics have to get younger. But they can't also sacrifice the willingness to compete now, before the team...
Kevin Garnett has been in contact with Danny Ainge since the Celtics were eliminated in the Eastern Conference finals.
The news that Kevin Garnett is returning to Boston has Celtics fans immediately thinking that it may be title time again. Garnett is reportedly signing a two-year deal with the Celtics, with a third year a possibility. Garnett showed over the second half of last season that he can still bring it and carry the C's deep into the playoffs. Now, with the Celtics adding young talent...

Kevin Garnett and the Celtics have agreed upon a three-year, $34 million deal.
Ryan Hollins played 5 1/2 seasons in the NBA and never found a big man he clicked with quite like Kevin Garnett. Hollins showed almost immediate improvement when he landed in Boston on March 23, meshing with Garnett and forming an occasionally impenetrable defensive duo in the post. The 17-year veteran even went to unusual lengths to mentor Hollins, 27, a gesture the younger player...
I absolutely love Jared Sullinger at the 21st pick, back problems be damned — almost as much as I loathe Fab “El Busto” Melo. I emailed a group of friends earlier this morning to say that if Melo becomes a productive pro, I’ll tattoo a profile of Kobe Bryant’s face on my chest and write a love letter to Rick Pitino.But Sullinger? He would have been a top 5 selection last...
Most of what was said during and immediately following the NBA draft on Thursday was standard front office-speak. Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge and assistant general manager Ryan McDonough were surprised to get Jared Sullinger and Fab Melo with the 21st and 22nd picks. They had both players rated higher. They like both players' potential but are not counting...
Now that the NBA draft is out of the way, Danny Ainge and the Celtics can turn their attention to locking up their free-agent veterans.

1.Anthony Davis Kentucky Fr. 6’10” – It’s hard to image that just a couple years ago in high school Davis was a guard, now he has grown into a power forward. His game reminds people of Kevin Garnett. Davis has great length and size, and he just needs to add some muscle. Davis is an outstanding athlete with great quickness and leaping ability. Offensively he has...
