Kevin Garnett is said to be considering retirement now that the Celtics’ season has ended and his contract has expired. If he decides to continue his career, he’ll have no shortage of suitors.
We’ve already heard that he might be interested in signing with the Lakers, and now we’re learning that the Spurs might also be interested.
From the San Antonio Express-News:
The Spurs will consider everything and everyone this summer when free agency begins. But one option tossed out this weekend by one in the Spurs organization is not just another name.
Not only is this notable because of the ways KG could improve the Spurs, but more importantly, because of the relationship between Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett.
According to a recent SI report, Duncan “hates” Garnett. The two are considered to be some of the best power forwards in the league’s history, but they’ve been rivals. Do you really think they could get along? Would Duncan even be comfortable having him around?
These issues might be moot if Garnett retires or re-signs with Boston, but they’re fun to consider. I can’t see it happening.
