Report: Kevin Garnett will move to management role if he can’t play out the 2nd year of his contract

635605002474516087-USATSI-8405230On Wednesday, it was announced that future Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett had signed a two-year contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Getting Garnett to coming back was huge for the organization especially after the team drafted Karl-Anthony Towns with the first pick the NBA Draft. While the terms for Garnett’s contract were not available when it was announced he was resigning, now it’s starting to become clear about the what the organization expect from him in the future. According to Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune, Garnett will move to management role if he can’t play out the 2nd year of his contract.


Like the three-year deal the Wolves and Nemanja Bjelica agreed to, Garnett’s deal can be signed according to NBA rules starting on Thursday.

The agreement likely has a provision that Garnett will move into a managerial role with the team if he is not healthy enough to play the 2016-17 season.


It’s obvious that whenever Garnett decides to call it a career, the Timberwolves already have a role in the organization for him. With Towns oozing with potential, it’s smart for the organization to let Garnett mentor him and the other young players on this team.
