It didn't take very long for NBA Free Agency to get underway.
That's an ideal situation for both the Celtics and Garnett.
Boston gets the most pivotal veteran on last year's team to return. The contract is alleged to be three years and $34 million dollars. Garnett earned $21 million last season.
Yes, that's a pay cut for Garnett. It's also not a bad deal for a 36-year-old player entering his 18th season in the league.
The pay cut will add salary cap space to the Celtics payroll. Added flexibility could be critical, as the Celtics will look to either re-sign free agents from last year's squad, or bring in new players.
Garnett of course gets the money, but he also gets to play for a team that came within one win of the NBA Finals last year.
What about the rest of the free agent market?
What makes the most sense for the remaining big names, in what should be a big summer of big signings in the NBA?
