NBA Rumors

Perhaps Kevin Garnett won’t be returning after all next season.

According to ESPN New York’s Mike Mazzeo, new Brooklyn Nets head coach Lionel Hollins hasn’t yet to speak with Kevin Garnett. The team still doesn’t know if Garnett will 20th season in the league.

While hope remained that Garnett would probably be back with the Nets this upcoming season, if nothing else to make his $12 million dollars he’s owed, the departure of Paul Pierce in the offseason is a bigger dagger than most realize.

If you remember, it was Pierce who had to convince Garnett not to waive his no-trade clause in order to be dealt to Brooklyn last offseason. And now, Garnett is still in Brooklyn while Pierce moved on to greener pastures.

Other than money, there’s really nothing waiting for Garnett in Brooklyn. At some point, money takes a backseat to happiness.

And right now that’s exactly what Garnett needs to ask himself. If that answer is no, and that he’s not happy, maybe it’s time for Garnett to hang up his jersey.
