In an interview with Sina, the Chinese media company, Kevin Garnett says he wouldn’t have waived his no-trade clause and”without a doubt” retired if he had been separated from Paul Pierce.
Garnett was in China handling some business for Anta when he made the statement.
Garnett was asked by a Sina reporter what he would have done if he had been traded to Brooklyn without Pierce. The translation to his answer came out like this.
Moderator: Can you say if the transaction object is only you, no Pierce, you would choose to reject it?
Garnett: I would refuse, if I was traded away, I would choose to retire, without a doubt, I would choose a direct retired.
The statement from Garnett is not shocking or new, but it confirms the fact that he would have walked away had Pierce not been included.
