Nets' Kevin Garnett not thinking of potential buyout


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4:17 pm ET) With speculation growing about the Nets possibly buying out Kevin Garnett's contract, Garnett told reporters he's more concerned with how the Nets are playing, reports the New York Daily News.

"I haven't thought too much of my own personal [stuff]," Garnett said. "When that road comes, I'll cross it and I'll deal with it," he said. "A lot of things with family, situation and things, it's not just convenient to get up and move, to change things. It's not as convenient as it once was when I was younger. I have a lot more responsibilities and things to take into account."

The Nets are 18-28, but Garnett said he's committed to helping the Nets make the playoffs.

"I don't know what management is going to do," he said. "When my situation comes up, I'll obviously give it some attention. Other than that, my attention is trying to get us on a winning streak, get us on a road where everybody's playing together."

Nets coach expecting more playing time for Kevin Garnett


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) Nets coach Lionel Hollins has said veteran center Kevin Garnett is going to play more minutes and have a bigger role in 2014-15 than he had last season. However, Garnett is hesitant to agree with his coach, according to the New York Post.

"Talking about [more] minutes and then actually [what happens] is probably going to be two different things," Garnett said. "Obviously, I’m trying to keep my body to the point where I can hold up. Eighty-two games plus postseason is very, very difficult on your body. I’m just taking it one day at a time, so we’ll see."

Last season, former coach Jason Kidd had planned to rest Garnett during one of the two games during their 20 back-to-back contests and also limit him to around 20 minutes per game to have him ready for the playoffs. Garnett seemed to struggle with the minutes restrictions, so Hollins said the restrictions will not be in place this season.
