Updates Part II

Ian Thomsen/ on the trade rumors:
The latest leaked proposal -- a three-way deal involving Phoenix and Atlanta -- has not even been discussed among all three teams, a league source insisted Wednesday afternoon...

It's entirely possible that something could change to convince all three teams to begin discussing the proposal. Until that happens, there's no sense in getting all worked up about it. As things stand on the eve of the draft, I am convinced that the Web sites and talk shows are focusing on this rumored trade a lot more than the teams themselves...

Rashad McCants is on KFAN at the moment with Sludge and Lake. When asked if he thought Garnett would be dealt by the draft, the player said "yes."

Trent Tucker on Glen Taylor leaving yesterday for China:
"I would have to believe that they have something in place already. Whether it's a deal or no deal, because for him to go to China today with the situation like this hanging in the balance, evidently they have already discussed something and they have a plan in place. When the head guy makes the final decision and guy who writes the checks, if he decides to leave town in the hands of others, that means at some point in time they've made a deal, and he's comfortable enough to take a trip. "

RealGM compiled a list of memorable moments in Garnett's career.

From Dan Barreiro/KFAN:
Is there a Ricky Davis deal that the Wolves could do today? One source says yes, though the Garnett melodrama could affect the Wolves' interest. Another league source says there is no way Garnett would walk from that $23 million season, which is this person's way of saying Danny Ainge should have been willing to call KG's bluff.
