Glen Taylor expects Garnett to be back next season


Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor told Darren Wolfson of 1500-ESPN that he expects Kevin Garnett to return next season.

Garnett has started 38 games this season but hasn't appeared in a game since January 23rd. The Star Tribune reported in late March that Garnett wants to play again this season but his knees are still ailing him.

Despite averaging just 3.2 points and 3.9 rebounds this season (both career lows) he provides much needed leadership on a young Timberwolves roster.

The Timberwolves re-signed Garnett to a two-year, 16.5 million dollar deal last summer. Minnesota has just four games left in their season and has not appeared in the post-season since 2004.
