Return of the Timberwolves prodigal son?

Bringing back yesterday’s stars is a thing in Minnesota sports now and the Minnesota Timberwolves appear ready to get on board.

The Wolves are trying to bring Kevin Garnett back to the squad, ESPN reports.

The team would send Thad Young to Brooklyn for Garnett, assuming Garnett waives a no trade clause.

Garnett said last fall he’d like to buy a piece of the Timberwolves.

Nets Daily points out, however, that relations between Garnett and Wolves owner Glen Taylor are not particularly warm.

Why would the Timberwolves do this? Garnett is almost 39 years old and there’s very little left in the tank.

They have the worst attendance in the NBA.

Today is the NBA trade deadline.

Update 2:02 p.m. – The deal has been finalized according to out-of-market NBA writers.
