Today, the Boston Celtics were fortunate enough to cross off one of their major needs.
Boston’s skilled big man and free agent, Kevin Garnett has agreed to re-sign and lock up a three-year deal worth $34 million dollars on the first day of this season’s NBA free agency.
Garnett [36 years old] will head into his 18th NBA stint in hopes to win just one more NBA championship. Prior to last season, KG’s contributions were slowly declining. Many people thought Garnett would retire after this past year, but due to KG’s improved performance last season, the idea of retirement quickly went out the window. It’s amazing how things can change.
Kevin Garnett rejuvenated his career by posting an average of 15.8 points and 8.2 rebounds per game this past regular season. The switch from power forward to center seemed to have benefited KG, even more so in the playoffs when he elevated his game to another level [19.2 pts and 10.3 rebs].
KG was one of the major reasons why the Boston Celtics even had a chance of eliminating the current NBA champions, Miami Heat. Garnett proved to be the most consistent and was the clear-cut leader of the team.
Celtics’ GM, Danny Ainge doesn’t have any time to take a breather. Players like Brandon Bass and Ray Allen are still available in the open market, two free agents that the Celtics would love to re-sign as well.
