Kevin Garnett Re-Signs with Timberwolves


Garnett appeared in just five games in total for the Timberwolves, and sat out the team’s final 21 games of the regular season.

He did, however, play for the Wolves for the first 12 years of his career.

Now he will play there for at least his final two.

From 1500ESPN:

Long expected to re-sign in Minnesota for at least another year at age 39, Garnett’s contract is “done,” according to 1500ESPN contributor Darren Wolfson.

Terms of the deal were not immediately known.

“I’m incredibly excited and rejuvenated to be a part of this talented, committed team,” Garnett said, in a statement passed along to Wolfson.

Garnett who came into the league fresh out of high school will be playing in his 21st year with the NBA. That ties him for the most ever with Robert Parish and Kevin Willis.

Garnett’s job will be not so much on the court as off the court, as he will be used to mentored the young Wolves. The young guns on the team include, Rookie of the Year in Andrew Wiggins, a former No. 1 overall pick in Anthony Bennett, and this summer’s top pick in the NBA Draft, Karl-Anthony Towns.
