Kevin Garnett will reunite with Doc Rivers as part of Clippers' staff
The Clippers have hired Kevin Garnett as a consultant
Since retiring from the NBA in September, Kevin Garnett has become a fixture on TNT's "Inside the NBA," where he regularly offers up his insight and analysis. But Garnett still has that desire to be a bit more hands-on with the NBA, which is why he has accepted an offer to become a consultant with the Clippers.

Garnett joining the Clippers make sense. He basically had the same role last season while playing for the Timberwolves, acting as a player-coach and aiding in the development of Karl-Anthony Towns. It's worth noting he also has a house near Los Angeles in Malibu and has a strong relationship with Clippers coach Doc Rivers, who used to be his coach when he played six seasons for the Celtics. And while Garnett will only be there in a part-time capacity, he is one of the best big men to ever play the game, and sharing his knowledge with Griffin and Jordan will only be beneficial.
