Could Kevin Garnett Really Be An Option For Brooklyn?

There are rumors out that Billy King is looking at Garnett as an option and is doing his due diligence to see if he can pry the 15-time All-Star from the “rebuilding” Boston Celtics.

If the deal could be struck it would solve multiple Brooklyn issues with the most glaring being the lack of scoring at the power forward position, second being a leader with championship experience and pedigree to show the other Nets how to get to the next level.

More than anything else, the Nets need more heart and passion on their roster and that is exactly what Garnett brings in bunches.

IF King could actually pry Garnett from the Celtics hands it would be the start to a very successful second season in Brooklyn and the sky would be the limit.

Needless to say this scenario is “highly unlikely” but we can all hope for the best.

Multiple sources told the Daily News that the Nets GM inquired about Kevin Garnett’s desire to join Deron Williams in Brooklyn, but King didn’t get an answer while uncertainty surrounds the Celtics.

Garnett, 37, has a no-trade clause in his contract, which he vowed not to waive last season. But circumstances changed dramatically in Boston following a first-round playoff loss to the Knicks, with GM Danny Ainge committing to rebuilding and Doc Rivers bolting to the Clippers.

As much as the Nets would love Garnett, it’s an unlikely pairing given the obstacles. Not only is it still unclear whether he’d agree to join the Nets — which is what King was hoping to figure out by reaching out to a third party — there’s also a very high hurdle of negotiating an inter-division trade.[/quote_simple]
