KG: Truthfully, no. When I see Danny Ainge in passing, we laugh at it, but there's nothing concrete.
How long do you want to play?
KG: I don't know. I'm enjoying the guys I play with. I'm enjoying the game.
If you hadn't left Minnesota, would you still be playing?
KG: I wouldn't still be in Minnesota, first off. Minnesota's always been my second home. But going through the process, I probably would have [left] a little sooner. Just knowing where management's mind was—not on the same page with me.
How close were you to joining the Lakers?
KG: I was pretty close [in 2007]. What disturbed me about the whole Lakers situation was Kobe Bryant and Phil Jackson at the time. They were at each other pretty bad, and a new situation full of uncertainty wasn't something I wanted to get into.
It was your choice not to go to the Lakers?
KG: It was my choice.
Is there any chance I could get a 10-day contract with the Celtics?
