Garnett's preferred destination and 'destination players'

A seven-year-old narrative should be set straight. Unlike Kevin Love, Kevin Garnett did not want to leave the Timberwolves. This differentiation on preferred destination was going to be in my story on the Garnett trade, but didn't make it in due to space constraints. Saturday, Timberwolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders took time out of the news conference announcing the Love-to-Cleveland trade to retell the story.

Teammates, coaches praise what Mason Plumlee brings to Team USA

You'll get no argument from Mason Plumlee's teammates or coaches as to whether he deserved a slot on Team USA. They know. Tim Bontemps spoke with them this week as part of his profile of the Nets big man ... and no surprise, they credited his toughness, work ethic and defense. "[Plumlee’s] a great communicator," Thibodeau said, comparing Plumlee to his Nets teammate and former Thibodeau charge, Kevin Garnett. "You see that he sees things early. He’s a multiple-effort guy. That’s what Kevin is, and any time a young guy has an opportunity to be around a guy like Kevin, it’s very...

Mason Plumlee: Kevin Garnett "hungry," feels "great"

Mason Plumlee said he had a brief conversation with his mentor, Kevin Garnett the other day but what the 38-year-old told the 24-year-old should make Nets fans feel relieved about KG's return. It's about unfinished business. "He said he feels great," Plumlee told Andy Vasquez. "He’s hungry, too, for this season. He didn’t like how last season ended. I think everybody. You have a team with guys who are used to winning and be successful and they didn’t like how last season ended. So everybody has a hunger, a drive, going into next year." The Nets front office have long said they expect...

It still looks like Kevin Garnett will return for another season

Kevin Garnett has one year remaining on his deal, along with 10 million reasons to return for another season. Kevin will enter the 2014-15 season without Paul Pierce at his side for the first time since 2007. As you guys know Paul signed a two-year deal with the Wizards in July.
