Are the Celtics finally back?

It appears to be almost official - Kevin Garnett going to the Boston Celtics. Minnesota and Boston have been in trade talks and supposedly the deal is almost complete. Boston would get Kevin Garnett. The Timberwolves would get Al Jefferson a good young power forward, Gerald Green a young athletic wing player, Theo Ratliff, Sebastian Telfair and possibly more. The holdup is Garnett's contract. The Celtics don't want to give up so much and then lose him to free agency in a year.

This deal would make the Celtics Eastern Conference competitors. Finally the East is coming back after so many down years. The Celtics would have Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Garnett. Even though they have traded the rest of their team away they would still be pretty good with only 3 players. They definitely need to make sure they have role players to fill in or they still won't be dominant, look at the Nets big 3.

More to come.
