Kevin Garnett As Partial Timberwolves Owner Would Make Good On What He Was Promised Years Ago


Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor wants to sell the franchise with the stipulation that the new owner(s) won’t move to a different city.

In comes Wolves legend Kevin Garnett, who, together with a group of investors, is ‘seriously interested’ in exploring a bid to buy the franchise.


“My passion for the Minnesota Timberwolves to be a championship team is well known but I have a deeper affection for the city of Minneapolis.”

“I once again want to see Minneapolis as the diverse and loving community that I know it is. No two people love the city more than myself and Glen Taylor and I look forward to trying to work with him to achieve my dream.”



Garnett as Timberwolves owner would be the perfect fit, not only should there be any doubt that Kevin Garnett is the greatest Timberwolves player in franchise history, he also was promised to be part of the current ownership group.

In 2015, when Garnett came back to finish his career in Minneapolis, he was about to join the team’s ownership group – something the late, great Flip Saunders arranged with Taylor for Garnett.

After Saunders passed away later that year, Taylor did not honor the plans he had with Saunders and Garnett, leaving the about to be Hall of Famer and Taylor in discordance.

This also was the reason why the franchise’s most famous son, didn’t want his jersey retired in Minnesota, after retiring:


“Glen knows where I’m at, I’m not entertaining it. First of all, it’s not genuine. Two, he’s getting pressure from a lot of fans and, I guess, the community there. Glen and I had an understanding before Flip died, and when Flip died, that understanding went with Flip. For that, I won’t forgive Glen. I won’t forgive him for that. I thought he was a straight up person, straight up business man, and when Flip died, everything went with him.”
