Kevin Garnett Says He Will Not Waive No-Trade Clause Despite Being Linked to Trade Rumors


Kevin GarnettAs Thursday’s NBA trade deadline approaches, it seems like half the Celtics roster has been involved in trade rumors. As you paint up your next franchise-saving deal, you can leave one name off: Kevin Garnett.

Boston’s All-Star forward says he will not waive his no-trade clause. The latest rumor swirling around Garnett is that he will be traded to the Clippers for Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan. Despite owning a home in Malibu, Calif. and being good friends with Los Angeles guard Chauncey Billups, Garnett says he wants to retire a Celtic.

“If it’s up to me, I’m going to live and die green,” Garnett told reporters before All-Star practice.

Garnett is one of just four players in the league with a no-trade clause. That was one of the stipulations when he signed a three-year extension this offseason.
