Kevin Garnett Expected to Sign Two Year Deal to Stay in Minnesota
Kevin Garnett made the homecoming return to Minnesota last season and now is on the verge of continuing it for another two seasons.
Free agency has taken the NBA by storm this offseason. Players have signed contracts totaling over 1.4 Billion. Instead of jumping into the pool and possibly signing with a contending team, Garnett has decided to stay put. ESPN's Marc Stein announced this morning that Garnett will sign on for another two seasons in Minnesota.
Stein also reports that Garnett's plan is to play through his 40th birthday, which would be on May 19, 2016.
Garnett is a 15 time NBA All-Star, former NBA MVP (2004), four time All-NBA First Team, former NBA Defensive Player of the Year (2008), and former NBA Champion (2008 with Boston).
Garnett played his first 12 seasons in Minnesota before being traded to Boston in 2007-2008. He also spent a year and a half with Brooklyn (2013-2015) before being traded back to Minnesota.
