Today was decision day for Kevin Garnett and the news is good for the Boston Celtics. According to a source, The Boston Herald is reporting Kevin Garnett will return to the Celtics next season, and possibly longer.
The 36-year-old considered retirement, but ultimately decided to return for an 18th NBA season — and more.
According to an NBA source and a source close to Garnett, the sides are working out the details of a deal that will be for at least two years and could possibly 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.”
Much more on this situation upcoming as it develops but it’s safe to say, this is a great sign for C’s offseason, as the entire gang could very well be back next season. Full analysis on the way…..
UPDATE: Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports is reporting the deal is for three years and 34 million dollars.
