Boston Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge said he did not believe he would trade Paul Pierce or Kevin Garnett before the trade deadline.
Now, Ainge has re-engaged the Los Angeles Clippers in trade talks involving Garnett. Both sides have been banding about with these talks regularly, and the trade deadline is less than a week away.
The reported new deal would send Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan to the Celtics for Garnett. The previous deal that was being talked about several days ago was Bledsoe and Caron Butler for Garnett.
Clippers head coach Vinny Del Nego wants the Clippers to make the trade. However, the front office is reportedly totally against the move, as they would rather keep Jordan and give up Butler instead.
Obviously, the Clippers front office has the final decision in all personnel decisions. And they are reportedly only willing to trade Caron Butler, Willie Green, and Ronny Turiaf.
Also, it is worth to note that Garnett has a no-trade clause. He does own a house in Malibu, California and has a close relationship with Chauncey Billups, who is on the Clippers. The well-traveled point guard and Garnett were teammates in Minnesota from 2000 through 2002.
