Flip Saunders says Kevin Garnett Will Start for Timberwolves

Kevin Garnett was brought back to Minnesota to mentor the young talent they had on the team and the young talent they would be bringing in, as he played in just 5 games for the Timberwolves totaling an average of 19.6 minutes per game. That isn’t stopping Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders from starting Garnett come 2015-2016.

In a recent question and answer session with Zach Lowe of Grantland, Saunders was asked if he plans on starting Garnett. His response:

Is KG going to start?

He’s gonna start. That’s who he is. KG is a starter. He’s the best power forward on our team, actually. No one rebounds better. He’s the best help defender. No one communicates better. He knows the offense, and he can pass it.

Interesting move for the Timberwolves. Garnett will more than likely not play a lot of minutes as a starter, giving a ton of minutes to the younger guys that will ‘back-up’ Garnett if you will.
