Garnett on a cruise

From Shira Springer/Boston Globe:
The Celtics and Timberwolves have agreed on the players to make a Kevin Garnett-to-Boston trade but no deal can be completed until issues with Garnett's contract can be worked out.

As the trade currently stands, Boston will send Al Jefferson, Gerald Green, Theo Ratliff, Ryan Gomes, Sebastian Telfair and two first-round picks to Minnesota in exchange for Garnett.

League sources said that the reworking of Garnett's contract could still be a sticking point...

Springer notes:
Slowing down the trade/approval process is the fact that Garnett is on a cruise until the end of this week.

From the Star Tribune:
The NBA would have to approve the trade, which has complications because of salary cap issues, and that approval would probably not come until Tuesday. An official announcement from either team is not likely before then.
