BOSTON, July 30 (UPI) --
The Boston Celtics reportedly have gotten forward Kevin Garnett
from the Minnesota Timberwolves in a multi-player deal.
The Boston Herald reported Monday that finances between Garnett and the Celtics were being worked out.
The Herald said Boston sent five players -- forwards Al Jefferson and Ryan Gomes, guards Gerald Green and Sebastian Telfair, and center Theo Ratliff -- and two draft picks to Minnesota for Garnett.
One pick is Boston's 2009 first-round selection and the second would be the pick Boston acquired from Minnesota in the Wally Szczerbiak-Ricky Davis trade.
Garnett, 31, averaged 22.4 points, 12.8 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.7 blocks last season for Minnesota. The 6-foot-11, 12-year veteran has career averages of 20.5 points, 11.4 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.7 blocks.
The No. 5 pick in the 1995 draft Farragut Academy, a high school in Illinois, Garnett has been named to 10 NBA All-Star squad and was the 2003-2004 season most valuable player.
