Former Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Garnett announced his retirement from the NBA just a couple days ago and now he already has a job offer.
Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue has apparently offered him a position at the Cavaliers and says he has already discussed it with the 15-time All-star Power Forward.

“I talked to him about it, I know his wife is pushing for it a lot. Brandi is pushing for it, trying to get him to come and coach. He says he’s not ready yet. He goes back, `I might do it,’ but he’s back and forth. We’ll see. But I’d definitely make a spot for him if he wanted to come back and coach.” Coach Lue said after team practice on Thursday.
Kevin Garnett announced his retirement from the NBA last Friday after 21 seasons in the league, averaging 17.8 points and 10.0 rebounds per game as well as winning the league in 2008. The 40-year-old is a sure-fire Hall of Famer and played for the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics, but he is best known for his time with the Minnesota Timberwolves when he had nine consecutive seasons.
Lue also said that Garnett plans to attend the Cavs opening game on Oct. 25, when superstar Lebron James and his teammates will receive their championship rings and raise a title banner.
