Report: Nets reach out to Celtics about Kevin Garnett
|06.26.13 at 7:59 am ET|
Garnett, 37, has a no-trade clause in his contract and said last season he would not waive it. However, that was before coach Doc Rivers left. The 15-time NBA All-Star has two years and $24.4 million remaining on his deal. He averaged 14.8 points and 7.8 rebounds last season.
The Nets have the 22nd overall pick in Thursday’s draft. They also reportedly are trying to trade guard MarShon Brooks.
Garnett played alongside new Nets coach Jason Kidd on the 2000 U.S. Olympic team.
