The Los Angeles Clippers are trying to get Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett in a trade, according to the Sporting News.

The Clippers, chasing an NBA title, are reportedly offering swingman Caron Butler and point guard Eric Bledsoe. The Celtics need help in those areas with Rajon Rondo (knee) and Jared Sullinger (back) out for the season.

Bledsoe is averaging nine points, three rebounds and three assists per game backing up Chris Paul. Butler averages 9.8 points.

Garnett is scoring 14.9 points and getting 7.3 rebounds a game for Boston. However, he has a no-trade clause and may have to come off the bench if he came to the Clippers.
