Wolves' Garnett: 'I did not know the city missed me like this'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Timberwolves power forward Kevin Garnett played his first game with the Timberwolves since 2007 Wednesday, scoring five points on 2 of 7 shooting in 19 minutes of action after drawing the start in his team's 97-77 win over the Wizards.

Garnett's presence on the court 20 minutes before gametime drew the crowd to its feet, and the fans remained standing through introductions, which included a video of Garnett highlights as Kanye West's "Homecoming" played over the speakers. After the blowout win, Garnett left the floor to chants of "KG! KG!"

"I've been back before and I never paid attention to how much love is here still for me because I'm too busy being focused on the game," Garnett said after the game, per the Associated Press. "And tonight it was just over the top. I did not know the city missed me like this. I don't think that you can ever wish or ever think the city loves you like this. But to see it is reality and I'm very appreciative."

Garnett also racked up eight rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in the win, which pushed the team's February winning percentage over .500.

"Tonight's event was bigger than the game," coach Flip Saunders said. "It's about bringing a family member back home."


KG: 'If LeBron [James] can return home, why can't I?'


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) When deciding on whether to return to Minnesota and play for the Timberwolves, Kevin Garnett said it was a difficult decision, but ultimately decided if LeBron James can do it, then so can he.

"If LeBron can return home, why can't I?" he said.

The Timberwolves held a press conference Tuesday to reintroduce Garnett to the Minnesota media. Garnett spent the first 12 seasons of his career in Minnesota and said this was the one team he would waive his no-trade clause for.

"This is the perfect situation," he said. "This is full circle."

Garnett added that he never sold his Minnesota home and returning is a perfect ending for his career. He plans on bringing his 20 years of experience to the youthful team.

"I'm here to share my experience, my journey and instill confidence in these young guys. And give myself to this team," Garnett said.

Garnett's first game back with Minnesota will be Wednesday and he will start, reports the team's official website.

"I learned a lot on my first day [with Garnett]," Wiggins said.


Timberwolves F Kevin Garnett won't play Friday


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) The Timberwolves will have to wait just a little while longer before forward Kevin Garnett wears his first NBA team's jersey again.

Fresh from being traded to Minnesota from the Nets, Garnett will not play Friday night against the Suns, according to the Associated Press.

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Garnett's first game with the Timberwolves won't be until Wednesday against the Wizards.

The Timberwolves selected Garnett with the fifth overall pick in the 1995 draft. Following 12 seasons with Minnesota, Garnett joined the Celtics, where he won an NBA championship in 2008.

Garnett, 38, had to agree to waive his no-trade clause in order for the trade to proceed. With Garnett now a member of the Timberwovles, the team will try to sign Garnett to a two-year extension, a source told the Associated Press.  

Garnett spent the first 12 seasons of his career with the Timberwolves, but was traded to the Celtics in the summer of 2007. He went on to win his only championship during his first season in Boston.

"We are excited to have Kevin Garnett back in Minnesota and playing for the Timberwolves," said Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders. "When people think of the Timberwolves they think of KG. He had some great years for us and our organization and fans really respect what he's done here in Minnesota and throughout his NBA career. KG will bring his usual strong work ethic and leadership and be a positive influence for our young team."

Garnett's first action back with the Timberwolves will come Wednesday against the Wizards, coach Flip Saunders said Thursday.
