There is a lot of buzz surrounding the Minnesota Timberwolves this year now that the young core they have amassed is being guided by Tom Thibodeau.

Karl-Anthony Towns was the unanimous Rookie of the Year during the 2015-16 campaign and Andrew Wiggins continues to grow as another number one overall draft pick in their ranks.

Zach LaVine also rose to prominence last season for his efforts in the slam dunk contest at the All-Star weekend.

They looked primed to have a real run at the playoffs next season, but will they have their 40-year-old leader Kevin Garnett on board?

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor said last week that the team is still awaiting word on KG’s plans for the 2016-17 season.

“Kevin hasn’t told me or informed me yet if he’s coming back to play or if he isn’t coming back,” Taylor told Steve Aschburner of “I can only assume I’ll be hearing from him in the next three weeks.”

The power forward is cutting it fine, but he is arguably the greatest player in the franchise's history.

He had to go to the Boston Celtics to win the title his talents deserve, but driving the young Timberwolves to the playoffs would be a fitting way to go out too.
