Kevin Garnett’s playing status has been in doubt every offseason for years. Those doubts have been even greater now that Garnett is 38 and coming off one of his toughest seasons, statistically speaking.
Garnett has yet to say what his plans are, but one source told ESPN.com’s Marc Stein that Garnett is leaning toward playing one more season for the Brooklyn Nets.
“I think he wants to keep going,” the source reportedly told Stein.
Garnett has one season at $12 million remaining on his current contract. He signed the three-year deal with the Boston Celtics in 2012, amid murmurs that he might retire. He was traded along with Paul Pierce to the Nets on draft night last summer.

Brooklyn Nets forward Andray Blatche seems to like women that like attention. A few months back he was spotted on TMZ with Sandrina- you remember her, self proclaimed groupie. She used to “date” Lamar Odom and Dwyane Wade. This weekend, Blatche was spotted in a Miami club boo’d up with “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” star Karlie Redd.
Wondering what the age difference...
The Nets had expectations of championship or bust last season, that all changed of course when Brook Lopez suffered a season ending foot injury. Still there are areas where the Nets need to improve on to be successful. I will discuss the top 5 areas where the Nets need to improve the most.
