Jeff Goodman: Thomas Robinson needs to clear waivers tomorrow and told ESPN he then intends to sign with the Nets. We'll see if that added athleticism translates to more wins, but it definitely provides this team with a different look than it had before. Twitter @GoodmanESPN

Tim Bontemps: Source confirms Nets to sign Thomas Robinson to a 10-day. Team initially wasn't interested but changed its mind over the weekend. Twitter @TimBontemps

"We are excited to have Kevin Garnett back in Minnesota and playing for the Timberwolves," said Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders. "When people think of the Timberwolves they think of KG. He had some great years for us and our organization and fans really respect what he's done here in Minnesota and throughout his NBA career. KG will bring his usual strong work ethic and leadership and be a positive influence for our young team." NBA.com

Statement from Billy King: Today we are pleased to announce that we have made an important trade for our team by acquiring 6-foot-8 power forward Thaddeus Young from the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Kevin Garnett. In his 8th year out of Georgia Tech, Young, 26, is having one of his best seasons, averaging 14. 3 points and 5.1 rebounds. He is a terrific multi-dimensional player who will have an immediate impact on the team. In fact, while I was President of the 76ers in 2007, I drafted him with the 12th pick of the first round and I’m thrilled to bring him to Brooklyn. This trade gives our team more athleticism, speed, and youth, and he will be a great complement on the court with Mason Plumlee and Brook Lopez. NBA.com


Deron Williams and Joe Johnson move up a few spots in a list topped by their former head coach.
