Convoluted Rumor

Jun 20 - Latest Kevin Garnett trade rumor: The Wolves send the 31-year-old all-star to the Phoenix Suns in a convoluted three-way deal with the Boston Celtics that includes Shawn Marion going to Boston and Minnesota getting the No. 5 pick from the Celtics, plus several young players.
The Wolves already have the No. 7 overall pick in the June 28 draft. It's unclear, though, how Garnett's $22 million salary would match up for the deal. -- St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://www.twincities.com/dailydose/ci_6181525)
Garnett's value on the trade market has dropped considerably because he has the right to opt out of his contract after next season and become a free agent. No smart GM is going to pay a premium for a player he may lose for nothing in a year. Of course, the Bulls would've been willing to gamble in February because a deal then would've secured Garnett's services for a minimum of two playoff runs. According to sources, the Bulls still are very interested, but their current offer would be substantially less because they would be assured of having Garnett for only one playoff run. -- Chicago Sun-Times (http://www.suntimes.com/sports/jackson/435004,CST-SPT-jax20.article)

I think if they bulls or the suns got Garnett he'd resign with them. All he has asked for was to get him help. Something the Twolves have never done. Always bringing in older players or people on the downside of their careers.
