Clippers rumors: LA discussing trade for Celtics’ Kevin Garnett

The Los Angeles Clippers have been discussing a trade for Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett for guard Eric Bledsoe and center DeAndre Jordan, according to Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc Spears of Yahoo!.

Wojnarowski and Spears add that there are differing factions within the Celtics and Clippers on the “prudence of the deal,” but the teams have “been in regular contact about the possibility,” of an agreement.

The biggest issue in the negotiations could be getting Garnett to waive his no-trade clause in order to facilitate a trade. While Garnett’s said he hopes to remain with the Celtics, Wojnarowski and Spears suggest there’s hope that he’d consider waiving the clause given his home in Malibu and close relationship with Clippers guard Chauncey Billups.

Los Angeles is now thought to be more willing to trade Bledsoe as they are confident that Chris Paul will re-sign this offseason. The Clippers also believe the addition of Garnett would make the team a strong championship contender this season.
