REPORT: Kevin Garnett Will Play Two More Years, Then Join Flip Saunders In Bid to Buy T-Wolves

Kevin Garnett is set to make his much anticipated return to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night against the Washington Wizards. One of the most intimidating players in NBA history, Garnett already has his T-Wolves teammates scared.

The 38-year old forward will reportedly play through the 2016-17 season. KG will be 40 years old when he retires and have played 21 years in the NBA. Once the future Hall of Famer finally decides to hang them up he will join head coach Flip Saunders and attempt to buy the franchise that he put on the map.

Garnett is the highest paid player in the history of the NBA and he is ready to do big things with his earnings.

Via Pioneer Press:

The contract extension Kevin Garnett, 38, will sign with the Timberwolves this summer will be for two years. During that period, Garnett and Wolves president-coach Flip Saunders are expected to try to form a group to buy the team from Glen Taylor.

Garnett has amassed more than $325 million in salaries during 20 seasons in the NBA. Saunders, who turns 60 on Monday, has made an estimated $40 million during 17 seasons as a NBA coach.

The Wolves, for whom Taylor paid $88 million in 1994, were valued at $625 million last January by Forbes. Taylor, who turns 74 in April, is amenable to taking in more limited partners. But he’s not interested in selling his team until he finds out what the Atlanta Hawks, who are for sale and currently are taking bids, end up going for.
