With his playing days almost numbers, Kevin Garnett has big ambitions for his post-NBA play career. He wants to become an owner.
The NBA star tells Yahoo! Sports that he would like to become the owner of his former team, the Minnesota Timberwolves… some day.
“I want to buy the Timberwolves,” Garnett said. “Put a group together and perhaps someday try to buy the team. That’s what I want.”
Garnett spent his first 12 seasons in Minnesota, where he became a superstar after being selected by the Timberwolves with the #5 overall pick of the 1995 draft, right out of high school.
Now in his 20th season in the league, Garnett is in the final year of his contract (he will make $12 million in 2014-15). However, it’s unknown if it will be his last.
The 38-year-old is averaging 8.0 points and 8.0 rebounds in 23.0 minutes per game for the Nets (4-4) this season.
