All offers submitted today are preliminary, non-binding offers which can still be altered, Soshnick writes.

“I’m one of the groups trying,” Garnett wrote on an Instagram story next to the news report that offers on the team have already been made. “Lawd plss let my group get this.”

A successful bid by Garnett’s group would put an emphatic end to his impasse with the franchise where he built his Hall of Fame career. Garnett has held a longstanding feud with Taylor and has disassociated himself from the franchise as long as Taylor was involved.

In February, he said that he didn’t want his jersey retired with the team.

‘I don’t do business with snakes’

“I’ll always have a special place for the city of Minneapolis and the state of Minnesota in my heart,” Garnett said at the time. “But I don’t do business with snakes. I don’t do business with snake motherf------. I try not to do business with openly snakes or people who are snake-like.”

As if Wednesday wasn’t rough enough for Minnesota sports fans, sad news surrounding the Timberwolves buying out Kevin Garnett ’ s contract came down later in the day. Wednesday morning

It appears that Garnett will make an exception to his “snake” rule if the business entails taking over ownership from Taylor. And it’s safe to say that if Garnett gains an ownership stake, his No. 21 jersey will be raised in the Target Center rafters.

Garnett joined the Timberwolves out of high school as the No. 5 pick in the 1995 draft. He played his first 12 NBA seasons with the Timberwolves, making 10 All-Star teams. After winning an NBA championship with the Boston Celtics and a brief stint with the Brooklyn Nets, Garnett returned to the Timberwolves before retiring in 2016.

He was elected to the The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on his first ballot and was scheduled to be inducted alongside Tim Duncan and Kobe Bryant this year before COVID-19 postponed the ceremony.

Garnett says his feud with Taylor started after he says the Timberwolves owner failed to honor a deal they had along with former general manager and head coach Flip Saunders. Garnett says that when he waived a no-trade clause to return to the Timberwolves from Nets, it came with an understanding that he would join team ownership and play a front-office role after he retired.

He says Taylor backed out of that arrangement when Saunders died of Hodgkin lymphoma in 2015.

“Glen and I had an understanding before Flip died, and when Flip died, that understanding went with Flip,” Garnett said. “For that, I won’t forgive Glen. I won’t forgive him for that. I thought he was a straight-up person, straight-up business man, and when Flip died, everything went with him.”
