Willing To Listen?

Jun 19 - As the draft approaches and the rumor mill heats up, speculation will continue on the subject of trading Kevin Garnett.
According to Wolves owner Glen Taylor, nothing has changed in that department. After the season ended, he and Vice President of Basketball Operations Kevin McHale said the plan was to have Garnett on the team next season. That does not mean, however, that the team wouldn't listen to offers. Taylor said he hasn't heard any serious offers from anyone.
"Kevin [McHale's] plan and my plan is that he stays here," Taylor said of Garnett. "The difference is that, years ago, if a team had called [about Garnett], I wouldn't even have talked to them." -- Minneapolis Star Tribune (http://www.startribune.com/wolves/story/1254004.html)
Celtics director of basketball operations Danny Ainge acknowledged yesterday that he has talked with the Minnesota Timberwolves about a potential trade for Kevin Garnett.
However, Ainge refused to comment about a published report that had the Celts shipping Al Jefferson, Gerald Green, Sebastian Telfair, Theo Ratliff and the fifth pick in next week's NBA draft for the All-Star forward. A league source confirmed the teams have talked but are not close to a deal. -- Boston Herald (http://celtics.bostonherald.com/celtics/view.bg?articleid=1007207&format=text)
