The Los Angeles Clippers have contacted the Celtics expressing interest in a trade for Kevin Garnett, sources tell Sean Deveney of the Sporting News. Deveney's tweet is below.

Eric Bledsoe, a dynamic guard, would be the attractive piece in terms of future talent. He's under contract next season for an affordable $2.6 million. Butler, the former UConn product, is solid NBA veteran who is above average when healthy, but it's unclear where the small forward would fit in on a roster that already has Paul Pierce and Jeff Green at the position.

That Garnett's name is surfacing in trade rumors at all is a sign that other teams are curious about whether or not the Celtics are still all-in on this season after injuries to Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger. On paper this season, trading Garnett would not appear to help Boston's cause.
