The Mets are close to a deal to acquire Twins second baseman Luis Castillo for two prospects.
The deal is contingent on the Mets' physicians approving Castillo's medical records.
The Star Tribune, citing two major league sources, reported that Minnesota will receive Double-A catcher Drew Butera and Single-A outfielder Dustin Martin from New York.
Castillo can be a free agent after this season. However, the Mets are said to be looking at him as a player they would be interested in beyond this year.
Multiple sources told ESPN.com that the Wolves are believed to be getting Al Jefferson and Theo Ratliff's expiring contract. A Celtics official also confirmed to the Boston Globe's Jackie MacMullan that a deal was in place.
It's believed that the latest incarnation of the deal also would have Minnesota acquiring youngsters Gerald Green, Sebastian Telfair and Ryan Gomes. The salary-cap math involved would require both teams to account for Garnett's $6.75 million trade kicker.
