Nets continuing to operate with the belief that Kevin Garnett will return next season, sources say. KG has been in contact with the team.— Chris Mannix (@ChrisMannixSI) June 14, 2014
Of course KG has 10 million reasons to return for one more season with the Nets. Who knows with the Heat perhaps breaking up, the Nets may have a slim chance to win the East with a healthier team on the horizon. Kevin Garnett finished his first season with the Brooklyn Nets averaging just 6.5 points and 6.6 rebounds per game. Those are some mediocre numbers from the legend. He played around 20 minutes a night, and during the playoffs when his numbers usually went up in years past.
I don't see KG playing after he finishes up his last year with the Nets. I don't know how much he'll be able to give in his final season. I hope he's able to perform. I don't want to see him riding the bench.
