Garnett and the Celtics still haven't finalized his new deal, according to Steve Bulpett of the Herald, but are in the process of completing a deal that will be at least two years and might include a third.
"The decision came down to whether KG wanted to keep playing," said one source. "And once he decided that he did, it was going to be Boston. He wasn't going to leave Doc (River) and those guys and play anywhere else."
"Kevin was absolutely great this season, and he just wants to keep going," said a source. "And when you look at how he was playing, there's no reason for him to stop."
