NBA Rumors: Kevin Garnett 'definitely' re-signing with Timberwolves

Kevin Garnett -- Drops More Than $20,000 ... On 1,000 Ticket Giveaway

Kevin Garnett was brought back to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a trade last season that had everyone feeling pretty nostalgic. However, with his impending free agency ahead, some wondered whether or not Garnett would be making his way back for another season with the team that he started his career with.

Well, have no fear, Timberwolves fans. It appears that Garnett will be back for another year.

According to TwinCities.com, Garnett will "definitely" be re-signing with the Timberwolves once the free agency period opens up.

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.


In the grand scheme of things, this is terrific news. Just having the No. 1 overall pick in the Draft this past week, the Timberwolves chose big man Karl-Anthony Towns to be their anchor in the middle for years to come. While Towns obviously possesses a world of talent, it could take things to a whole other level to have Garnett around showing him the way. A veteran presence can go a long way on a team such as this, and Garnett has shown once before that he has no issue in mentoring young talent.

It's good for the team as a whole as well to have him around for at least another year. Not only is Towns in the fold now, but you have the Rookie of the Year in Andrew Wiggins returning, plus Zach LaVine, as well as Ricky Rubio from injury.

He might not be the dominant force that he once was, but Garnett can certainly make some sort of difference with this group one way or another.
