Report: Kevin Garnett Will Return for 21st NBA Season
2 hours ago
by David Kenyon

USATSI_8457274_168380823_lowres-810x543.jpg

Veteran power forward Kevin Garnett isn’t ready to retire.

According to Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities, the 39-year-old Garnett is planning to return for his 21st NBA season, his 14th as a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Mere formality, part deux: told the Garnett contract re-signing here is done. Will search for the terms later after radio. #twolves
— Darren Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) July 7, 2015


Garnett will tie an NBA record for most seasons played, according to Basketball-Reference.com. Power forward Kevin Willis and Hall of Fame center Robert Parish both appeared in 21.

After spending six years with the Boston Celtics and playing parts of two seasons for the Brooklyn Nets, Garnett waived his no-trade clause and headed home to Minnesota at the February trade deadline. The Timberwolves drafted Garnett fifth overall in 1995.

Garnett appeared in 47 games last season, tallying 6.9 points and 6.6 rebounds per outing before knee issues shortened his year.

However, at this point of his illustrious career, Garnett’s biggest role is serving as a mentor to younger—much younger—players.

2014-15 NBA Rookie of the Year Andrew Wiggins was born in February 1995, mere months before Minnesota drafted Garnett. Karl-Anthony Towns, the team’s No. 1 overall pick, followed that date by nearly six months.

Contract details have not been released.

KG about to be the old man in the gym illegal screening, throwing elbows and telling everyone to feed him the ball in the post while he backs dudes down and goes to the up and under.

Getting Jeff Green midseason was a nice try and at least attempting to improve the perimeter. It actually worked out during the season when he was first acquired. The team started to fall off after TA and Conley got injured later in the season. But, I just don't think Green can get it done. He was dealing with back spasms in the playoffs, but he was so poor that it made me miss Tayshaun Prince.

Been saying this and it always goes unnoticed. It was beyond ridiculous against the Warriors when they had Gasol and Z-bo bringing the ball up the floor in the 4th quarter. When Conley fouled out or was either hurt. The coach took both backup point guards out of the game, I guess that was an analytics move. Serious talk Thibbs as been good with backup point guards maybe they can hire him just for that. From Gilbert Arenas and the others, they have never had anyone who can give Conley any help at the backup point guard postion. The frustrating thing is the window is getting smaller and smaller and may be closed at this point. I like the Grizzlies type of play, but when Conley goes to the bench or they get down by more than 10, it's tough to watch.

Question -- can they afford to have Tony Allen starting another year and not be a threat on the perimeter? Bogut "guarding" him and by that being just close enough not to get an illegal defense was crazy.

Its that simple to me, completely black and white. If you dont like your service or what have you, then you tip less (with a floor of 10% if you must, although I would never, 15% is the floor), but not tipping at all? Scumbag behaviour. 

Hell naw homie. I tip 99% of the time because 99% of the time I get decent service, but if my service is garbage you get nothing.

KG coming back isnt a good thing. If he wants to mentor young players shouldve became an assistant coach.
Whats the point in having him play 40 games and averaging 5 ppg?
I just hope he gets the vet minimum. If not mean.gif

I think him being on the actual court mentoring them is really valuable rather than him screaming from the sidelines and during practices.
post #13462 of 38131
kg is still pretty solid given limited minutes. him being vocal on the court is gonna help these young guys
post #13463 of 38131
Him being there is gonna help these young guys a lot. Being physically out there is better than screaming from a seat or talking in practice the next day. They're not contending this year anyway so might as well get the trial runs and see what works and what doesn't.

For me, its a little less about a backup PG and more about having a perimeter player that can create / score. Whether its a big combo guard, a true SG or a SF. They need another scorer that can take the pressure off him. Beno was fine last year as a backup and lit Portland up in the 1st round until he got hurt. He was the most efficient mid range shooter in the league last season as well. However, he's old and his defense sucked. I'm fine rolling with Beno or maybe even Russ Smith, but like I said the Grizz need another scorer / playmaker. When they signed VC last year, he fit that mold perfectly off the bench. I mean the guy just came off of 3 seasons in Dallas where he was in the running for 6th man of the year. Then, he got hurt and was never healthy last year. That's why I'm somewhat hopeful of him returning to that guy next season.

Still, a 38-year old VC simply will not be enough. The guy I'm describing to help Conley is basically Jordan Adams. As poor as our perimeter play was last season, Joerger never gave Adams a true shot and he did very well in the little minutes he saw. He can score, handle, create and get to the line. It'll be in their best interest to make sure he's developing this summer and use him as a go to scorer off the bench that can play next to Conley late in games.

As for Tony, I'm in favor of putting him on the bench. But, our wing rotations is poor right now and you cannot realistically say Jeff Green or Matt Barnes is more effective than him as a starter. In spite of his offensive liabilities, he gets it done on the defensive end and changes games solely off of that. But, the Grizz either need to bring another guy in that will force him to the bench or roll with Lee and Barnes. If not traded, I see Green being the combo forward off the bench.

LIke I said, the Grizz can get away with lack of shooting in the regular season. They can also get away with it against most teams in the playoffs, but once they match up with an elite level squad (GSW, SAS), they end up being shown the door. They've beaten LAC, POR and probably could've beat OKC if not for Zbo's suspension with lackluster shooting. But, they cannot get the entire West without it.
