East Rutherford, NJ, United States (4E Sports) – Kevin Garnett has indicated that he will begin preparations for his return to the Brooklyn Nets for his 20th NBA season.
Nets general manager Billy King has been in touch with Garnett and added that he is optimistic about having the big man back and that the 38-year-old will begin training soon.
He reiterated Wednesday that they have been operating as if Garnett is under contract and will play next season until told otherwise.
King added that he believes Garnett will be able to play at a high level next season. “I think he’s preparing earlier this year than he did last summer,” he quipped.
Garnett averaged 6.5 points and 6.6 rebounds in 20.5 minutes a game as head coach Jason Kidd monitored his playing time. He is slated to make $12 million.
