Kevin Garnett Wanted To Play With Reggie Evans.

It was originally a foregone conclusion that Reggie Evans was heading to Boston in the Garnett-Pierce deal, but all of a sudden his name was pulled out.

At the time nobody knew what that was all about but Kevin Garnett has decided to spill the beans.

“I won’t go into specific details of what I was wanting and dislikes and everything else when it came to building the business of basketball,” Garnett said before the Nets beat the 76ers, 127-97, in Monday night’s preseason game at Wachovia Center. “But I will say this: One of the key things for me was not only Paul (Pierce) and ‘Jet’ (Jason Terry) coming here with me to make it comfortable, but Reggie Evans had to be on the roster. That was a huge key for me coming here.”

It’s easy to see why Garnett would enjoy playing alongside Evans. They’re two of the most fierce competitors in the game.
