Woj: Kevin Garnett will not accept contract buyout, but will consider one trade option

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Marc Stein reported on Tuesday night, the eve of the NBA trade deadline, that the Brooklyn Nets and Minnesota Timberwolves were discussing a trade that would send Kevin Garnett back to Minnesota in return for Thaddeus Young. The ball, however, remains in Garnett's court as he has a n-trade clause in his contract.

Another thought, however, was that Garnett might accept a buyout of his contract for the remainder of this season, which would allow him to hit waivers and look to sign with a contender.

Adrian Wojnarowksi, however, is reporting that a buyout is not an option.

Of course it is interesting note there that KG will consider the trade to the Timberwolves, the team that drafted him.

I suppose we'll see at or before Nets' practice today:

Stay tuned.
