Report: Kevin Garnett refused offer from Chris Paul to make trade happen

Kevin Garnett [1] said all along he wanted to remain a Celtic, and apparently he said the same thing to Chris Paul [2] after the All-Star guard called to gauge KG’s interest in joining the Clippers.

According to the Boston Herald [3]‘s Mark Murphy [4], Paul contacted Garnett and said if the veteran big man was open to making the move to Los Angeles, Paul would make it happen. Garnett said no.

The oft-rumored trade would have landed the Celtics [5] center DeAndre Jordan and guard Eric Bledsoe.

The Celtics ended up making one move before Thursday afternoon’s trade deadline, acquiring Jordan Crawford from the Wizards for center Jason Collins [6] and injured guard Leandro Barbosa [7].
