Kevin Garnett thinks A-Rod could move Wolves to Seattle

No matter what he says in public, many still think Alex Rodriguez is planning to move the Minnesota Timberwolves to Seattle. That also seems to involve a remarkable legend from the team.

Retired Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett spoke to Sopan Deb of the New York Times this week and addressed the new Minnesota homeowner group.

“I actually think I’ve heard whispers that A-Rod will actually bring the Timberwolves to Seattle,” Garnett said. “So we’ll see. I don’t know … Nobody wants to see the wolves leave Minneapolis, but you know, it’s business. I would never want the Timberwolves to leave Minneapolis and Minnesota. I think this team means a lot to this state. “

Garnett, who spent 14 seasons with the Wolves, added that he didn’t speak personally to Rodriguez or co-owner Marc Lore. The former NBA MVP was originally in the bid to buy the team with his own group of owners, but said in the interview that “that opportunity has passed.”

Rodriguez and Lore are now limited partners in Timberwolves after agreeing on a $ 1.5 billion purchase price from current owner Glen Taylor. You will take full responsibility for the team in 2023.

The whispering that Rodriguez wants to move the team to Seattle, where he played for many years as a Mariner, is of course nothing new. But Garnett is a bit better connected than average, especially when it comes to the Timberwolves. Rodriguez has publicly stated that they will not move the team, nor should the NBA be interested in moving. But business interests can change very quickly, so the situation is still worth watching, especially with Rodriguez and Lore taking full control.
