Updates Part II

From Jessica Camerato/Hoopsworld:
League sources have reported that the Boston Celtics are still in talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves to acquire Kevin Garnett, but a new name in the deal is causing a snag.

The deal to move Garnett to Boston would include Al Jefferson and the fifth pick, and now the Timberwolves want to ship out Marko Jaric and attain Gerald Green.

The Celtics are pushing back on Jaric, who has four years left on his $40 million contract...

From Chris Mannix/
Nor is it likely that Kevin Garnett will find a new home before the start of next season. The only trade that makes sense for Minnesota is the reported deal that would send Garnett to Boston for a package of Al Jefferson, Gerald Green, Sebastian Telfair, Theo Ratliff and the fifth overall pick.
