Kevin Garnett had an impressive NBA career and finished as one of the top big men in league history. Throughout his career, he made a good amount of money. Recently, there’s been talks about Garnett expressing interest in buying the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Garnett has certainly made some money after his playing career finished. Here’s a look at his net worth.
Kevin Garnett put together a Hall of Fame career
From the time he got drafted into the NBA, Garnett was a force on the court. The Timberwolves selected him with the fifth overall pick in the 1995 NBA draft. Garnett quickly burst onto the scene during his years in Minnesota and became the face of the franchise. He made multiple All-Star and All-NBA teams as a member of the Timberwolves. Garnett was named the NBA MVP in 2004 after averaging 24.2 points, 13.9 rebounds, five assists, and 2.2 blocks per game. He brought that physical toughness to the court whenever he played, and he was not afraid to get in an opponent’s face and trash talk.
The people in Minnesota loved Garnett, and he helped lead the team to the Western Conference Finals in 2004, where they fell to the Los Angeles Lakers 4-2. Garnett spent his first 12 seasons in Minnesota, putting together an impressive career there. But it was time for him to move on and join a team that he believed he could win a title with. That’s exactly what he. In July of 2007, Garnett was traded to the Boston Celtics. This put the Celtics in the driver seat to compete for an NBA title. Garnett joined Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen and the Celtics had one of the best teams in the league.
During his first season with the Celtics, Garnett averaged 18.8 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game. The Celtics went on to win the 2008 NBA title defeating the Lakers. Garnett finally got the title he waited so long for. He spent six seasons in Boston, and during that time, the Celtics were one of the best teams in the league. After his time in Boston, he was traded to the Brooklyn Nets and played for a brief time there before returning to Minnesota and finishing his season with the Timberwolves. In 2016 he announced his retirement after 21 seasons in the league. He finished his career averaging 17.8 points, 10 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game.

In 2019, Garnett starred in ‘Uncut Gems,’ as he tapped into his acting skills. Garnett also continued to be involved in basketball after his career was over as he had his own basketball segment on TNT called Area 21. One thing is certain, which is Garnett is still making money even though he’s no longer playing.
Kevin Garnett interested and buying the team that drafted him
Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor is thinking about selling the team. One person that is interested in buying the team is Garnett.

He went to Twitter to talk about his love for the organization and the city of Minneapolis. “No two people love the city more than myself and Glen Taylor and I look forward to trying to work with him to achieve my dream,” Garnett wrote on Twitter.
