Rumor: Kevin Garnett may get traded back to Minnesota

Everything has come full circle.

Here's an interesting rumor that only tangentially has to do with the Celtics.  KG going back to Minny?

Minnesota Timberwolves interested in re-acquiring Kevin Garnett - ESPN

The Minnesota Timberwolves ‎are making an 11th-hour push before Thursday's trade deadline to try to reacquire Wolves legend Kevin Garnett in a swap that would send Thaddeus Young to Brooklyn, ESPN.com has learned. Sources told ESPN.com the sides have engaged in serious discussions on the deal, which would ultimately require Garnett's approval even if the teams agree before Thursday's 3 p.m. deadline, since Garnett possesses one of the NBA's six full no-trade clauses.

That would be something.  KG hates change (HATES it) and is hyper-competitive, so taking him out of an Eastern Conference "race" (if you can call it that) and putting him on a rebuilding team to be Old Man Winter to the young pups is going to be a hard sell.  But if anyone can do it, it would be Saunders.

Besides, KG has to be looking toward his future at some point.  In fact...

Should be an interesting one to track today.
