Garnett Won’t Waive No-Trade Clause

February 16 2013 at 11:37am CDT By Sean Highkin

In the midst of rumors that the Clippers and the Celtics are discussing a Kevin Garnett trade, the veteran forward told reporters Saturday that he will not waive his no-trade clause for any team. Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports tweets that Garnett simply replied "No" when asked if there was any team or circumstance under which he would allow himself to be traded.

Yahoo! Sports reported on Friday evening that the Clippers and Celtics are discussing the framework of a trade that would send Garnett to Los Angeles in exchange for DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe. Garnett was believed to be open to waiving his no-trade clause in this situation because he owns a home in Malibu and the Clippers are a contender. However, he came out strongly on Saturday against the notion.

Garnett is the owner of one of only four no-trade clauses in the NBA, alongside Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant, and Dirk Nowitzki.
