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.

"I do expect him to play more," Hollins said. "He’s been in great shape, mentally he’s very sharp, and we’d like to see him contribute more than 18-20 minutes per game."

"This year, I'm coming in with a little more edge, a little more assertiveness," Garnett said, who is entering the final season of his contract. "Kind of [reverting] back to how I came into this league and what I've created for myself. I'm being a lot more aggressive."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) Nets head coach Jason Kidd has not ruled out the possibility of sitting center Kevin Garnett for the remainder of the regular season, according to The Brooklyn Game.

Garnett has been sidelined for over month because of a back injury and remains without a timetable. He was averaging 6.7 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in just 49 games this season -- his least productive season in the NBA.

"If he gets to play before the playoffs, that would be great," Kidd said. "If he gets to practice before the playoffs, that would be great. If he had no practice or no games, for him being on the floor, that would help us dramatically."
