I don't know why they would want to get rid of Garnett, as he was one of the best players in the playoffs and is still solid. The Celtics had the most injuries of any team in the playoffs, and were still one game from the finals.
garnett was looking really old, and that's after the shortened season. although next year teams wont be consistently playing every day. i think they'll keep him, but if he wants much more than veteran's salary he could be out.
they've got a lot of great pieces and one of the top 3 (in my opinion; he's top 5 indisputably tho) point guards in the game. he's a creator, he'll make some of the other dudes better. plus they'll still have peirce and he can still score on almost anybody.
