Even though Kevin Garnett will be a free agent this summer, many assume that the power forward will likely re-sign with the Boston Celtics. However, there are other options for the veteran, and many are thinking the New Jersey Nets can be a contender.
What the Nets are thinking— reportedly — is that they need to upgrade the roster and power forward is one place they feel they can do better. The team reportedly plans to chase after Boston’s Kevin Garnett as they try to add star power for when they move into the Barclays Center.
NY Post also has more:
A high priority for the Nets in the offseason will remain a starting power forward, with unrestricted free agents Kevin Garnett of the Celtics and Ersan Ilyasova of the Bucks leading targets.
It seems like the perfect scenario if the Nets can land him, as they can still be able to keep Deron Williams possibly as they make their move to Brooklyn.
We’ll see what happens.
