Kevin Garnett to Boston?

With the NBA draft just over a week away trade rumors are starting to pop up everywhere. Some of them are serious reaches and some of them make so much sense you’ll wonder why they aren’t going to happen.

Danny Ainge acknowledged Monday that he has talked with the Minnesota Timberwolves about a potential trade to bring Kevin Garnett to Boston. Rumors have it that Al Jefferson, Gerald Green, Sebastian Telfair, Theo Ratliff and Boston’s fifth pick in this year’s draft were offered Garnet.

Other NBA Rumors

Drew Gooden could be heading to Chicago freeing up salary cap space on Cleveland’s roster.

The Bulls are also in play for Kobe Bryant even though Phil Jackson says he won’t be traded. Chicago could be trying to work a three team deal that would send Bryant to the Windy City and either Paul Pierce or Washington’s Gilbert Arenas to LA.

Joe Dumars is insistent that the Detroit Pistons are going to re-sign Chauncey Billups but the rumors say he is going to Milwaukee. The Bucks actually have the money to sign Billups and need a veteran point guard.
