Garnett rejoins Doc, Pierce as 'big-man consultant' with Clippers

Kevin Garnett has a nice little TV show in Area 21, but the future Hall of Fame forward is about to hop out of the studio to try his hand at coaching. Garnett will rejoin former Boston Celtics Doc Rivers and Paul Pierce as a big man coaching consultant with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Garnett, 40, should help bolster a Los Angeles front line that needs some help with Blake Griffin expected to be out until mid- to late-January.

Turner jokes that Celtics will retire his number

Turner jokes that Celtics will retire his number

It’s not the craziest thing someone has said on Twitter, but Evan Turner tweeted Monday that the Celtics should retire his number. 

It was a joke, of course, as the former Celtic was reacting to news that Isaiah Thomas had said he liked the No. 11 and would change his jersey number if so many people in Boston hadn’t already purchased his No. 4 jersey. 

After Turner joked that No. 11 was going to be retired, Thomas joked back that he would wear No. 11 as a tribute to the current Trail Blazer. 

Prior to being traded to Boston, Thomas wore No. 22 for Sacramento and No. 3 for Phoenix.
