Report: Clippers still talking to Celtics about Garnett

It's that time of year. Potential trades are everywhere.

On Friday night, the trade rumor mill was in full swing when Rajon Rondo's name came up with a potential deal to Los Angeles.

A Rondo trade might just be talk for now, but some older rumors might be gaining steam as the deadline nears.

When the Celtics played the Clippers on February 3, rumors began swirling that the Clippers were interested in Kevin Garnett.

According to Yahoo! Sports, the Clippers are still trying to pry the 36-year-old away from the Celtics.

The Clippers are reportedly willing to send center DeAndre Jordan and point guard Eric Bledsoe to Boston in exchange for Garnett.

In the original discussions, forward Caron Butler was also discussed.

As it was earlier in the month, Kevin Garnett's no-trade clause is a big topic in regards to any trade. He would still have to waive his no-trade clause for any deal to be completed.

Report: Blockbuster three-way trade would send Irving to Knicks, Anthony to Cavs

Report: Blockbuster three-way trade would send Irving to Knicks, Anthony to Cavs

Kyrie Irving's trade request has shaken up the Cleveland Cavaliers and Yahoo Sports reports that a three-way deal with the New York Knicks and Phoenix Suns that lands Irving in The Big Apple would shake up the NBA.

Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports says the trade being discussed has Irving and Tyson Chandler going to the Knicks, the Suns landing Kevin Love and Frank Ntilikina, the 18-year-old French guard who was the Knicks' top pick in the June draft, and the Cavs getting Carmelo Anthony and Eric Bledsoe.

The Cavs and Suns also get picks in the deal, according to Schultz.

Irving teaming with Kristaps Porzingis and Chandler with Knicks? LeBron, Melo and Bledsoe forming a new Big Three in Cleveland? The Celtics road to returning to the Eastern Conference finals would certainly get a lot more interesting.

Meanwhile, veteran NBA writer and SiriusXM Radio host Mitch Lawrence, writing for Forbes, has the Knicks as a "long shot" destination in the Kyrie Derby. 

New Celtic Marcus Morris has some advice for Kyrie Irving

Among the NBA players' Twitter reaction to Kyrie Irving's trade request was some advice from new Celtics forward Marcus Morris and perhaps some shade from teammate Kevin Love.

Morris' advice, well, more like a request:

And Love, when asked how he's doing, referred to his Cavs teammate Irving telling Sports Illustrated that Cleveland is "in a peculiar place" in an earlier interview this summer.  

Hmmm. Peculiar.
