Kevin Garnett joining TNT’s NBA coverage
Friday October 28th, 2016

It appears Kevin Garnett is bound for television.

The recently retired future NBA Hall of Famer will be joining TNT’s NBA coverage in a to-be-announced capacity, which the network teased with a promo video on Twitter Thursday night. The former Timberwolves and Celtics star, known for his candor, would join Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley on TNT’s roster of former players-turned-analysts.

The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski confirmed Garnett will join the studio show, and also reports he is discussing serving as a consultant with teams including the Cavaliers and Bucks. He could reportedly work for multiple teams as a roving assistant of sorts.

Garnett, 40, retired from the NBA last month as a member of the Timberwolves, where he began his career. Shortly after retiring, he appeared at a Clippers practice to help out former coach Doc Rivers, who has extended an open invitation for Garnett to work with the team.
