Have avoided reporting every hiccup because much is slim sourced. But hearing of a new push within the Clippers to do something w/Celts.

To clarify: Some people w/in Clips want to do the Celt deal. Not sure others in organization are onboard. Some internal issues here.— Steve Bulpett (@SteveBHoop) February 21, 2013
Ok, so I don't know what I can say that you don't already know about the Celtics-Clipper deal. The Clippers want Garnett, Garnett won't waive his no trade clause. Probably the only way he will is if Pierce is gone too and the team gets blown up. The Clippers were reportedly offering up to Eric Bledsoe and Deandre jordan.
The Clippers were hesitant about giving up that much for KG, and rightly so. However, there was the report that if Chris Paul pushed hard for them to trade for Kevin Garnett they would be more aggressive. We'll see what this turns into.
