Source: Celtics "moving closer" to deal for Garnett

From Steve Bulpett/Boston Herald:
The process still is far from complete, but a league source indicated last night the Celtics were moving closer to a deal for Minnesota star Kevin Garnett.

“There’s a good chance nothing happens,” the source cautioned, “but the talks seem to be ongoing. Neither side seems willing to drop this.”

It was further indicated that if such a deal goes down, it would indeed involve both Al Jefferson and the Celtics’ No. 5 overall pick in next week’s draft...

The Celtics are said to still be mulling over the pros and cons of the deal...
