Nets will try to retain Thaddeus Young beyond 2015
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nets general manager Billy King said Friday that the team will attempt to keep newly-acquired forward Thaddeus Young, who can opt out of the final year of his deal after this season, beyond 2015, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

"I know he can opt out but we’re going to do our best to try to keep him here," King said before his team delivered a 114-105 win over the Lakers in Los Angeles Friday.

Young acknowledged that the Nets have been trying to land him for some time.

"You hear the rumors and you hear the talk and I’m always prepared for anything. I know the business and understand the business. I’ve been playing going on eight years so I understand," Young said.

Young entered Friday's win off the bench and played 12 minutes in his debut, scoring eight points on 4 of 8 shooting while tallying four rebounds, one assist and one steal.

Wolves acquire Kevin Garnett from Nets
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Nets forward Kevin Garnett has accepted the trade that will send him to the Timberwolves for forward Thaddeus Young, reports CBSSPorts.com NBA Insider Ken Berger. Minnesota announced the deal Thursday night.

Garnett, 38, had to agree to waive his no-trade clause in order for the trade to proceed. With Garnett now a member of the Timberwovles, the team will try to sign Garnett to a two-year extension, a source told the Associated Press.  

Garnett spent the first 12 seasons of his career with the Timberwolves, but was traded to the Celtics in the summer of 2007. He went on to win his only championship during his first season in Boston.

"We are excited to have Kevin Garnett back in Minnesota and playing for the Timberwolves," said Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders. "When people think of the Timberwolves they think of KG. He had some great years for us and our organization and fans really respect what he's done here in Minnesota and throughout his NBA career. KG will bring his usual strong work ethic and leadership and be a positive influence for our young team."

Garnett's first action back with the Timberwolves will come Wednesday against the Wizards, coach Flip Saunders said Thursday.

Report: Timberwolves making push to land Nets' Kevin Garnett
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Timberwolves are making a late push to acquire Nets power forward Kevin Garnett before Thursday's trade deadline, ESPN.com reports.

Garnett, 38, spent his first 12 seasons with Minnesota, making 10 All-Star appearances while with the team. He was traded to the Celtics in the summer of 2007 and went on to win his first championship in his first season in Boston.

Garnett averaged 20.5 points and 11.4 rebounds during his time with the Timberwolves. He has averaged just 6.8 points and 6.8 rebounds in 42 games with the Nets this season.

The two teams have discussed a potential deal that would send Timberwolves power forward Thaddeus Young to Brooklyn in exchange for Garnett, who has the option of blocking any trade due to his no-trade clause.

Young, 26, has averaged 14.3 points and 5.1 rebounds in 48 games since joining Minnesota last offseason in the deal that saw Kevin Love sent to the Cavaliers.
