Garnett would love to buy team, but not with TWolves owner Glen Taylor
Garnett has shown interest in an ownership role in the past; however, the idea of owning the Timberwolves with Taylor is out of the question.
"I don’t want to be partners with Glen [Taylor], and I wouldn’t want to be partners with Glen in Minnesota," Garnett said, according to Shlomo Sprung of Awful Announcing. "I would love to be part of a group that buys him out and kind of removes him and go forward."
Taylor bought the franchise in 1994, drafting Garnett the following year. Garnett played his first 12 seasons with the franchise before being traded to Boston in 2006. He finished his career in Minnesota, signing on in an effort to become a developmental mentor for the franchise.
Since playing his final game as a member of the Timberwolves, Garnett hasn't hesitated to criticize Taylor. Just this past April, Garnett told USA Today his post-retirement involvement with the team showed him "the true Glen Taylor," feeling his value to the franchise was not appreciated by the Timberwolves owner.
Garnett played 14 seasons combined in Minnesota, making the All-Star team 10 times and leading them to the playoffs every year from 1997-04. The team hasn't made the playoffs since.
