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:
Kevin Garnett was at Nets practice yesterday, sweating profusely like normally does. Today's Nets practice occurs during the trade deadline.— Stefan Bondy (@SBondyNYDN) February 19, 2015
