Right now, there are two questions surrounding Kevin Garnett. One: Will the 17-year veteran return to the NBA next season? Two: Would Garnett -- an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career -- return to the Celtics?
Actually, those two questions might be one in the same.
"I don't know if he wants to play for anybody but Doc," Perkins said. "That would be the thing. He doesn't want to play for anybody but Doc."
Sam Cassell floated this notion last week, which means KG -- who hasn't spoken publicly since the Celtics season ended in Game 7 of the NBA Finals -- is either a super loyal guy or is already starting to plant seeds for negotiations this summer.
The Celtics have a decision to make about whether they'll go for it again with their Championship core or begin retooling for the Rajon Rondo + Avery Bradley years. But Danny Ainge wants to get the band back together, it appears Garnett would be on board.
