We've heard speculation about the Celtics potentially breaking up their core for a long time now, but it's starting to sound more and more like a real possibility. Earlier today, we learned that the Clippers have reached out to the Celtics about trading for Kevin Garnett, and they could certainly put together an attractive offer for Danny Ainge & Co. KG, however, is one of four players in the Association with a no-trade clause in his contract, so he'd have to give the green light to any deal that would give him a non-green uniform.

- Stephen Brotherston of HoopsWorld asks if it's time for the Celtics to trade Paul Pierce. While there are good arguments for selling on Pierce before the deadline, Brotherston argues that it would be easier to find trading partners able to work deals around Jeff Green ($8.4MM), Brandon Bass ($6MM), Courtney Lee ($5MM), or Jason Terry ($5MM).
- The Celtics met with Greg Oden yesterday, but coach Doc Rivers says that he isn't dwelling on whether they will sign the big man, writes A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. "I said hi to him," Rivers said. "We reminisced about high school days when I watched him in AAU. But other than that, I thought far more about the guys we're playing (today) than next year."
- Now that he's a member of the Raptors, forward Rudy Gay has been reunited with former teammate Kyle Lowry, writes Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun. Gay put up 29 points against the Heat earlier today but it wasn't enough as Toronto lost 100-85 at home.
