Kevin Garnett Staying With Celtics; Close to Signing 3-Year, $34 Million Extension
After contemplating everything from a change of scenery to retirement, Kevin Garnett has come to a decision. The 14-time NBA All-Star will remain in a Celtics uniform for a couple more years. According to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports, Garnett and the C's are now in the process of finalizing a 3-year, $34 million deal.
Steve Bulpett of The Boston Herald reported that "the decision came down to whether KG wanted to keep playing," one source told the Herald. "And once he decided that he did, it was going to be Boston. He wasn’t going to leave Doc [Rivers] and those guys and play anywhere else."
