The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

The Big Ticket proves transferable

Somebody stayed up late working up this deal:

The Boston Celtics announced today that they have acquired 10-time All-Star and 2004 MVP Kevin Garnett from the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Ryan Gomes, Gerald Green, Al Jefferson, Theo Ratliff, Sebastian Telfair, a 2009 first round draft pick (top three protected) and a return of Minnesota’s conditional first round draft pick previously obtained in the Ricky Davis-Wally Szczerbiak trade. Minnesota also receives cash considerations in the deal.

Okay. Do the Celtics have any money left to fill up the roster? I mean, they're giving up five players to get Garnett, who probably earns as much as any four of them put together.
