The Celtics have not engaged Kevin Garnett in serious discussion about a possible extension, the all-star forward told The Dan Patrick Show on Thursday.
Asked whether he's talked with Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge about an extension, Garnett said, "Truthfully, no, I haven't. ... He'll throw something up in the air, and it'll be funny and we'll laugh at it, but it's not concrete. No."
Under contract for $21.2 million for the 2011-12 season, Garnett said he has not made a decision about whether or not his current deal is his last. As for whether there will actually be a 2011-12 season, Garnett also shared his thoughts on the NBA lockout.
"You trust no one in this, to be honest," he said. "You trust the players, because we are all communicating, and it is negotiating, but you never trust the other side, you know? Because you don't know what they're thinking, and you don't want them to know what you're thinking. You try to come to some common ground that makes sense going forward."
Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck is reportedly among a group of owners willing to lose all of next season, and that is not lost on Garnett.
"You hear that, but you don't understand some of the motives of some of this," he added. "We have a take, and we have a stand that this game is too beautiful, with everything that's going on and all the story lines that surround our game, I can't see just blowing away the season. But I think if we did, both sides are prepared for that."
