The Wolves owner speaks out in the latest from the Star Tribune:
Star Tribune: Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor made it clear that a blockbuster trade offer would be the only type he would listen to for All-Star forward Kevin Garnett. And even then, the chances are nothing would happen, Taylor said.
“I’ve talked to Kevin and he is very happy staying here with us,” Taylor said. “He was excited about the acquisition of Juwan Howard [in the Mike James trade with Houston].”
“We’re going to listen to any offer,” Taylor said. “It would just have to be an exceptional deal for us. “I mean you’re right, the odds are just extremely high [Garnett will remain with the Wolves]. I don’t know what kind of a deal it would be, but it would have to be something. … You know it isn’t likely that we’re going to get the No. 1 or No. 2 draft [pick] because of where they went. [The deal would have to be] something like that, but that’s not going to happen. I can tell you nobody’s come close.
If you listened to Taylor, you too would be convinced there is zero chance that Garnett will be traded.
