Mavs discussed getting Garnett

According to Dallas Basketball, the Mavericks "did engage in trade-deadline discussions involving Kevin Garnett."

Harper, the former Mavs star (and frequent contributor) mentioned during a TX21 telecast of a Mavs game on Wednesday that he was told the Mavs discussed the notion of acquiring Minnesota of superstar Kevin Garnett in a deal that would have meant giving up Josh Howard and Jerry Stackhouse in trade...

However, according to a team source, the talks were "at most exploratory":
From what we can gather, as compelling as the story is, this wasn’t as much the Mavs talking with Minny GM Kevin McHale as it was the Mavs brass – Cuban, Nelson, Avery – talking amongst themselves.
