BOSTON The Boston Celtics have addressed their No. 1 offseason priority by getting a commitment from their defensive anchor, Kevin Garnett.
An unrestricted free agent this summer, a league source confirmed that the two sides are near completion on a three-year deal worth more than 30 million.
"Boston was the only team Kevin seriously considered," a source said. "The team's success, his relationship with Doc Rivers was a big, big part of his decision."
Garnett will be entering his 18th NBA season, with the goal of bringing home Banner 18.
