The Los Angeles Clippers are interested in acquiring Kevin Garnett from the Boston Celtics, the Sporting News reported Sunday, citing anonymous sources. Officials from both teams talked about a deal before the Celtics beat the Clippers 106-104 on Sunday, according to the Sporting News, which also said a potential deal would involve the Clippers' Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler. Sources told ESPN's Chris Broussard there have been no trade talks between the Clippers and Celtics' front offices, though the Clippers would love to have Garnett. The Clippers have lost six of their past eight games but have been hampered by injuries to guards Chauncey Billups, Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford. Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has maintained in recent days that the team is in wait-and-see mode and -- if it continues to win and show an ability to be competitive with top-tier teams -- he would prefer to stick it out with the current core. Asked about any potential roster moves before Sunday's game, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said, "We really haven't talked about (moves). Honestly. We obviously can because we need a body. But we really haven't talked about it much at all. Nothing really. What I think Danny (Ainge) is doing is probably doing all the work right now and I'm sure this week maybe, or who knows in two weeks, he'll come with a long list of scenarios." Garnett, 36, has a no-trade clause and two years left on his contract. The trade deadline is Feb. 21.
