Anything's possible for Kevin Garnett when his current contract with the Boston Celtics expires at the end of the season. Danny Ainge, the Celtics' president of basketball operations, said that he has spoken with Garnett about his future with the team (or lack thereof), but did tell WEEI's The Big Show that there are many options for the Big Ticket.
"I wouldn't close the door to any of those possibilities with KG," Ainge said. "[Leaving] is a possibility. Returning to Boston is a possibility, retiring is a possibility, all those things. Kevin will weigh every option. He's waited to become a free agent, he's loved his time here, he loves playing for Doc [Rivers], with his teammates. I don't know what he's going to do."
Ainge said that while the two has talked, they haven't gone into specifics yet.
"Kevin and I have talked about what his future might be but we haven't sat down and talked about his specific plans," Ainge said. "The reason we haven't gone into great detail is I'm not sure he knows. We're just trying to do the best we can this year, he's trying to play it out and I'm not even sure that he would even have an answer at this stage of what he plans to do with his future." (via WEEI)
Garnett is having another strong season in Boston, averaging 15.2 points and 8.2 boards. Garnett continues to reach milestone after milestone in his 17th season in the league and fifth with the Celtics.
