CelticsHub: Would KG accept trade?
Our good friend Brian Robb over at CelticsHub, our TrueHoop parter, ponders that while breaking down all angles of the situation. Here's a sampling:
Garnett is a man who likes consistency. He has a routine and he values playing in familiar surroundings. He’s also been around Boston long enough now to know Danny Ainge is always looking to deal, or at least trying to. Garnett didn’t want to have to worry about any of that. Using his bargaining position this summer, Garnett was able to get Ainge to insert the elusive no-trade clause in his new deal, one of the very few that exist in the NBA.
It's an interesting read and resolves to what most believe about Garnett: Unless the Celtics went the nuclear route and eliminated any chance of competing for a title in the foreseeable future, it's hard to imagine he'd even be intrigued by the idea of changing scenery. No, the more likely scenario is that Boston believes itself to be championship-caliber with Garnett around and elects to soldier on despite the recent injury woes.
