OS:Have you heard any word from Kevin Garnett on if he plans on coming back yet? Andrew Wiggins: Not yet. OS: How helpful was it for you guys having Kevin Garnett on the bench last season, acting as a secondary coach and sharing that love and passion of the game? AW: It was great. He was the best teammate for a lot of guys who are younger. He’s one of the biggest motivators, no matter what he’s always motivating you to do better and he’s always teaching, teaching everyone. If he sees you doing it wrong, he’ll make sure you get it right. He’s always positive, he always brings positive energy and it rubs off of the rest of the team.
“For people to send you messages as if you were going to be back and your staff was going to be back and we had everything going in the right direction, and to get a phone call [from owner Glen Taylor] two hours before your last game basically saying, ‘I’ve changed my mind and I’m going in a different direction,’ it just kind of knocked us all for a loop. We’ve all recovered from it and moved on but if you know Kevin, Kevin is very sensitive and he’s very loyal. And there was a lot of people in that organization that was let go, and the way it was done just left a bad taste in a lot of people’s mouth.”
