Could KG be headed to Lob City? The Los Angeles Clippers are reportedly interested in Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics. Representatives of both teams allegedly talked about a potential deal for Garnett that could involve Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler of the Clippers, The Sporting News reported. The Celtics beat the Clippers, 106-104, in Boston on Sunday.

A key force in the Celtics return to NBA prominence, Garnett, 36, still has two years and $23.5 million remaining on his contract after 2013. He also has a no-trade clause, which he would have to waive for any deal to get done.

Boston is currently 24-23, good for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The team recently lost point guard Rajon Rondo for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

The Pacific Division-leading Clippers have lost guards Chris Paul, Jamal Crawford and Chauncey Billups to injury. Garnett wouldn't help in the backcourt, but he'd give Los Angeles a formidable defensive presence against Western Conference contenders like Oklahoma City, Memphis and San Antonio.

The NBA's trade deadline is Feb. 21.
