Sunday's Garnett rumors

From Mark Heisler/LA Times:
With Minnesota seeking prospects, the Warriors are now offering Wright, Monta Ellis and Patrick O'Bryant.

Minnesota is asking for Andris Biedrins. Golden State is offering Al Harrington instead and may also insist that Garnett waive his $6.5-million trade kicker, so it's not done yet.

From Eric Gilmore/San Jose Mercury News:
Even Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Garnett, a bona fide NBA megastar, apparently wouldn't mind playing for the Warriors alongside Baron Davis if a trade can be worked out.

From Brian Hanley/Chicago Sun-Times:
Reports out of Phoenix are that the Suns -- Garnett's supposed team of choice -- are done trying to deal for him after predraft talks broke down. The Los Angeles Lakers, still trying to placate Kobe Bryant and his demand that the team add some serious star power, are still said to be very interested in Garnett. But the Timberwolves already have said ''no thanks'' to a package of Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom, and adding the Lakers' Luke Walton in a sign-and-trade likely won't change their minds.

From Peter Vecsey/New York Post:
Garnett was thisclose to becoming Steve Nash’s sidekick a day or two before the draft. Hawks GM Billy Knight (not one of his owners) nixed a three-way operation that would’ve harvested Amare Stoudemire. Marvin Williams, Tyrone Lue, ZaZa Pachulia and Nos. 3 & 11 would’ve wound up in Minnesota.
