Celtics say offers for Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett were weak

Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck told WEEI’s “Mut and Merloni” on Tuesday that his team was very active at last week’s NBA trade deadline despite failing to get a blockbuster deal done. Grousbeck said the names of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett came up the most in trade talks.
