Report: Kevin Garnett will “definitely” re-sign in Minnesota next season

24 Comments

When the Timberwolves traded for Kevin Garnett at the deadline, it was unclear what his future held. This was year 20 for the future Hall of Famer, whose skills are clearly not what they once were. There was talk that the trade was simply a feel-good thing for the fans in an awful season, and it would lead to Garnett transitioning into an ownership role with the team. Apparently, he’s going to play at least one more year with the team he played the first 12 years of his career with before hanging it up.

From Charley Walters of TwinCities.com:

Although it hasn’t been announced, pending free agent¬†Kevin Garnett definitely will re-sign with the Wolves, and Saunders definitely will return as coach.

Even if Garnett doesn’t play much, he’s still a good veteran influence to have on the team, especially for new No. 1 pick Karl-Anthony Towns.
