The Minnesota Timberwolves seem to have a fairly simple decision at the top of NBA Draft - draft either Kentucky center Karl-Anthony Towns or Duke center Jahlil Okafor - but that doesn't mean they aren't heavily scouting all of the top prospects.
According to NBC Sports, that includes having forward Kevin Garnett heavily involved in the process:
The Minnesota Timberwolves have the No. 1 pick, and they are doing their due dillegence — this week they have workouts with Jahlil Okafor and Karl Anthony Towns. They even are getting a better look at guys they almost certainly would not take with that spot, such as Kristaps Porzingis.
And they are getting Kevin Garnett‘s input on all of them.
Timberwolves coach and GM Flip Saunders was on the Chris Mannix NBCSports Radio show and said Garnett is involved in helping the Timberwolves make a decision.
This makes it sound like KG will be back with the Timberwolves on the court next season. Remember Minnesota traded to bring him “home” and out of Brooklyn mid-season. There was speculation that Garnett would retire this summer.
But whenever he does retire, he will have a role with the Timberwolves. Maybe as part owner, but a role one way or another.
