There has been a lot of talk recently about the Timberwolves accommodating Juan Howard's trade request. Now that Minnesota lost KG a.k.a. Kevin Garrnett, it's imperative for Howard to get to a team that can win before he retires.

I know a place where he would fit-Boston. I know now that the veteran list is climbing and this would only be a great team for a few years, but Danny Ainge (Executive Director of Basketball Operations) has to win now or he won't be in Boston much longer. The Celtics should not give any young talent away if they become a player in the Howard sweepstakes. Maybe a newly signed free agent would make the cut.

Boston has to be careful about this deal because Howard definitely has an injury probability. Last season he got hurt and I wouldn't rule out that he won't miss at least 10 games this season due to injury. I urge Boston to take a look at this deal but don't give away too much and consider the age and mileage on Howard before they pull the trigger.
