After 12 seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Kevin Garnett left the team in order to build a Big 3 with Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and the Boston Celtics. However, Garnett could return to the team where he started his career in some kind of a front office role when his playing days are over, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo:
Garnett has two years, $24.4 million left on his Celtics deal, but there’s a growing belief that he’ll play one more season before retiring and joining his old coach, Flip Saunders, with a ceremonial role in Minnesota Timberwolves ownership, league sources told Y! Sports.
“The opportunity will be there for him,” one source said, “but there’s nothing decided yet.”
It seems highly unlikely that Garnett will be able to reunite with Doc Rivers in LA, as the Celtics’ deal with the Los Angeles Clippers was blocked by the NBA. It has been known for a while that Garnett only wants to waive his no-trade clause if he was moved to LA, and Boston would definitely want that in order to speed up the team’s rebuilding process.
