5 NBA Teams That Would Be Ideal Trade Destinations for Kevin Garnett

Kevin Garnett doesn't have to go anywhere if he doesn't want to, but that doesn't have to stop the Boston Celtics from trying. 

Per Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports, the Los Angeles Clippers believe they can get Garnett to waive his no-trade clause if they put together a deal with the Celtics.

Of course, such thinking could prove futile, as Garnett has said on multiple occasions that he "bleeds" Celtics green.

And yet, you can't help but wonder if his mind can be changed. As well as Boston has been playing of late, the Celtics are not a team prepared to win a championship this season. Would the prospect of contending for one somewhere else eventually get the best of Garnett?

Regardless of what he says, anything is possible until Danny Ainge puts a deal in front him and asks: "So, whaddya think?"

Which NBA teams could actually get Garnett to "think" about leaving Boston while also providing the Celtics with an adequate return?

Garnett of all people understands this league is a business. But he also understands he can determine his own future.

A future that might not have him retiring as a member of the Celtics if the right opportunity presents itself.
