Kevin Garnett 'a special guest' at Clippers practice


Well this might get the Kevin Garnett rumor mill started up, but the former Timberwolves star was a "special guest" at Los Angeles Clippers camp Thursday.

Garnett accepted a buyout from the Timberwolves, and announced his retirement from the NBA last week. But Thursday, KG was working alongside another one of his former coaches Doc Rivers with the LA Clippers.

"He doesn't want to play," Rivers told ESPN last week. "I'm sure he won't play again. I think he realized, 'Why am I doing this?'"

In the interview, Rivers didn't hide his interest in bringing Garnett to the Clippers though, saying "you always find a place for a guy like that."

"It wasn't a great ending," Rivers told ESPN. "I'm not going to say too much about it, but once Flip passed away it threw a wrench into everything."

As for Garnett's future he has options. Rivers has offered him a spot as a player or a coach with the Clippers. There's also an Akron Beacon Journal report that says he's considering joining Cleveland's coaching staff with Tyronn Lue.
