Brooklyn Nets big man Kevin Garnett wants to return for his 20th season in the NBA. A league source told ESPN that the former Boston Celtic has indicated that he will begin preparing for at least one more season. Nets general manager Billy King told ESPN on Wednesday that the team has been operating as though Garnett will return. King also said that he believes Garnett will still be able to play at a high level. If Garnett does in fact play for another season, the 38-year-old’s playing time likely will be heavily monitored as it was last season. Garnett played in 54 games, averaging 6.5 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 20.5 minutes a game. He is set to make $12 million in 2014. Paul Pierce, the Nets’ other former Celtic, is an unrestricted free agent. There’s no word yet on whether Pierce will return to the Nets.Filed under: Brooklyn Nets, NBA, Sam Galanis, Top Stories
