Kevin Garnett is coming back to the Celtics, and it will be for more than one year. Herald report: bit.ly/N41DXi— Steve Bulpett (@SteveBHoop) June 30, 2012
According to an NBA source and a source close to Garnett, the sides are working out the details of a deal that will be for at least two years and could possibly include a third.
"The decision came down to whether KG wanted to keep playing," said one source. "And once he decided that he did, it was going to be Boston. He wasn't going to leave Doc (River) and those guys and play anywhere else."
Details to come.
