When the legendary Jackie MacMullan talks about the Celtics, we listen. She dropped a few bombs tonight on CSNNE (courtesy our very own Mr. Triple Double):
“I’m hearing that Kevin Garnett is coming back for one more year… they’re all waiting on KG”
Jackie Mac also said that she thinks at the end of the day, KG would play one more year if Pierce is here or not
“Everyone knows that they covet Paul Millsap” When asked what she thinks “Plan A” is, she said getting Millsap
Yeah she also brought up how difficult it would be to get Millsap, then brought up how it might be easier to bring Big Al back
I’m extremely happy to hear that Kevin Garnett is leaning towards a return with the Celtics. The dude can still play and his leadership skills are irreplaceable.
As for Paul Millsap, he’s an unrestricted free agent. What’s the 28-year-old worth? I’m guessing at least $12 million. The only way the Celtics land Millsap is by executing a sign and trade deal with Utah that includes Paul Pierce and a young player (Avery Bradley or Jared Sullinger?).
Of course, Utah could lock up Millsap and look to deal Al Jefferson.
Either way, the Jazz will have plenty of suitors for their leftover big man.
