The Timberwolves have the second-worst record in the NBA, but they’re still trying to make a splash at the trade deadline.

An ESPN report says Minnesota is pushing to bring back the greatest player in franchise history — Kevin Garnett.

Garnett came into the league straight out of high school in 1995 as the No. 5 overall pick by the Timberwolves. He spent 12 years in Minnesota becoming the franchise's all-time leader in games, minutes played, points, assists, rebounds, steals and blocks before being traded to the Celtics in 2007.

Since that trade, the Timberwolves have failed to make the playoffs.

Minnesota is reportedly offering Thaddeus Young in the deal. However, it’s up to Garnett to ultimately approve any deal, as he is one of six players in the NBA with a no-trade clause. The Timberwolves are hoping the chance to finish his career where it started would

be enough to lure Garnett away from the Nets and back to where his NBA career started.

Even if Garnett decides not to close his career in a Timberwolves uniform, he has expressed interest in eventually buying the team after his playing days are over. 

UPDATE: Garnett's talks with the Timberwolves could mature soon, as Tim Bontempts of the New York Post reports that the veteran is set to talk with Minnesota.
