Report: Nets Very Interested In Signing Celtics' Kevin Garnett This Summer

Having tried and failed to get their hands on Dwight Howard at the trade deadline this year, the New Jersey Nets have already turned their attention to other big men who could potentially hit the market this summer. Chief among them, according to SI's Zach Lowe, is the Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett.

Lowe followed up a report from SI's Chris Mannix saying that Garnett and the Orlando Magic's Ryan Anderson were atop the Nets' wish list. Apparently the Nets' main man is KG, who turns 36 this spring and has endured multiple knee surgeries in recent years.

Garnett has an expiring contract this spring -- he's currently playing out the final season of the three-year extension he signed upon his trade to Boston in 2007, making $21.2 million. It's unknown whether he wants to play anywhere at all once he finishes this deal, much less with the struggling Nets.

Garnett is averaging 15.1 points and 8.2 rebounds per game for the Celtics this season, and encouragingly, he's been on the floor for 39 of the C's 42 games.
