Garnett rumors updates

Marc Stein/ESPN on possible destinations for Garnett.

From Janny Hu/San Francisco Chronicle:
And there's a chance -- albeit small -- that a third could be coming. The Warriors had "substantial discussions" with Minnesota this week and aren't counting themselves out of the Kevin Garnett sweepstakes, according to a league source.
It isn't clear how close they came to pulling off a multi-team deal Thursday, but the odds of a Garnett trade diminished once Richardson and his hefty salary were first dealt away.

From Eddie Sekfo/Dallas Morning News:
As for the rumor, the Mavericks were linked in speculation with the Minnesota Timberwolves about a trade for Kevin Garnett, but that speculation proved groundless.

From Broderick Turner/The Press-Enterprise:
However, league sources said the Lakers will wait out the Garnett saga in hopes they can persuade Minnesota general manager Kevin McHale with the right deal.

From Howard Beck/New York Times:
The Lakers’ attempts to acquire Garnett were stymied because of the Timberwolves’ soft interest in Bynum and a lack of other intriguing players on the Lakers’ roster.
