Two quick fouls for Payne, staying in game for now

Jerry Zgoda

Anthony Bennett down with leg injury, up and walking slowly off court. Headed to locker room. First look at Adreian Payne

Jerry Zgoda

One thing just occurred to me in tumult from Thurs: If KG plays another year or 2, doesn't that guarantee Flip as coach at least that long?

Jon Krawczynski

Actually not ruling this out for his actual entrance on Wednesday night. RT @Paul Flannery: It's like Sting coming down from the rafters.

Jerry Zgoda

Friday night crowd howls when fast-moving pre-game video flashes KG head shot up in a flash among all the other images

Jon Krawczynski

Pregame wolves video: "Big things are coming." With KG shown just briefly. Crowd lovin it

Jerry Zgoda

First time I've ever typed this: Kevin Garnett & Robbie Hummel are Wolves' inactive players tonight

Jerry Zgoda

The always affable @BloodStrib is covering tonight's game so follow him for updates and such. I'll chime in, too, as well

Andy Greder

Pregame read: The addition of Kevin Garnett won't change the fact that this is Ricky Rubio's offense. #Twolves twincities.com/sports/ci_2753…

Jon Krawczynski

Flip said a little over 30 tonight. RT @mntwins020733: is Rubio still on a minute limit?

Jon Krawczynski

Jalen Rose broke the news about Mayweather-Pacquiao like a month ago, right?

Jon Krawczynski

Zach LaVine occupies the locker KG had in 1st go-round in MN. LaVine offered it up to KG, but he's taking the vacant one right next to him.

Jerry Zgoda

Flip said one of vets told youngsters yesterday their phone better be put away in locker room with KG around, or they'll end up in toilet

Jerry Zgoda

Flip says Rubio's minutes restriction probably bumped up to low 30s now after AS Break

Jon Krawczynski

Anthony Bennett getting the start tonight at power forward

Jerry Zgoda

Shabazz available to play tonight with that finger injury. Only guy out injured remains Hummel, who's wearing smaller brace on hand recently

Jerry Zgoda

Flip says Bennett will start at PF tonight

Jerry Zgoda

Wolves will show condensed version of slam-dunk contest at halftime tonight

Jon Krawczynski

KG will not play tonight. Won't even be in the building. But you can already feel a different buzz at Target Center. It's noticeable

Darren Wolfson

Define soon? Probably Tuesday. You coming? RT @ColinNelson79 @Darren Wolfson Is there a KG press conference happening soon? #twolves

Jon Krawczynski

Wolves moved quickly to get KG back up on the wall in the back hallways of Target Center. His is right next to Flip http://t.co/v7bREncjPi

Jerry Zgoda

Shabazz has that finger(s) on left hand taped but out shooting and looks ready to go tonight vs Suns

Jerry Zgoda

I'll be joining @BenHolsen105 and @thesuperstar68 on @105theticket in about 10 minutes talking about, well, I have no idea what...

Darren Wolfson

(con.) Figure Young stays w/ Nets and doesn't become an UFA this July. Bottom-line: he wanted out of Minnesota. So he's thrilled. #twolves

Darren Wolfson

New layer: Told Thaddeus Young's representatives asked the #Twolves to trade him. They never officially said he would elect UFA this summer.

Jerry Zgoda

Btw: KG returns still ranked 1st in franchise history in games, minutes, rebounds, steals, blocks & points, all by a large margin

Andy Greder

On a Dinkytown street, some college bruh just yelled at me, "KG's back, baby!"

Jerry Zgoda

That didn't take long to promo in Target Center skyway. KG poster must be right behind http://t.co/k0b8ZkeH9t

Darren Wolfson

Just leaving Pitino time. Nate Mason -- felt woozy late Wednesday -- practicing today and playing tomorrow. #gophers

Jerry Zgoda

Zach didn't want to let slam-dunk trophy out of sight so lugged it home himself. "In a big ol' bag. It looked like I was grocery shopping."

Jerry Zgoda

Zach on head-spinning moment from NYC: @wolfblitzer wanted his photo/autograph. "He reacted to me like I should have reacted to him."

Darren Wolfson

Leaving #Twolves shoot-around. Rubio gushing about his confidence level w/ his shot. Believes all going in. Quite a mental transformation.

Darren Wolfson

Pretty amazing KG has logged about 50,000 career minutes, & wants to play at least 1 more year. He'll be top-3 all-time in minutes. #twolves

Jerry Zgoda

Flip said they tried Brooklyn last summer on KG as part of Love trade but Nets weren't ready to go there yet

Jerry Zgoda

A leftover thought from last night: Flip recounted Love trade - now basically Wiggins, AB & KG - and seemed pretty darn satisfied with it

Jerry Zgoda

Mark your calendars: I'll be doing a live chat Wednesday at 12:30 pm, just hours before KG debut. Grab a sandwich & bring your questions!

Jon Krawczynski

But the prospects of repairing the relationship between a franchise and it's greatest player is important.

Jon Krawczynski

Of course, ultimately, if KG doesn't help the young core mature and have a major influence that leads to wins, it won't be a success

Darren Wolfson

KG spent All-Star weekend at his place on Lake Minnetonka. Bounced the idea of returning off some friends, including Gary Trent. #twolves

Jon Krawczynski

KG spent 12 yrs here. Like Wiggins said: "When u say Wolves, he's the 1st thing that comes up." So there should be good feelings all around

Jon Krawczynski

if anything can come of this reunion, a bridging of the gap between KG and the franchise may be 1 of biggest long-term goods

Jon Krawczynski

If you watch Wolves games, Taylor is always very jovial w/past players when they come back to town. Hasn't been case w/KG, a prideful guy

Jon Krawczynski

Got a little messy when KG left in '07. He and Glen Taylor haven't said more than hello to each other since. Will have to reconnect.

Jerry Zgoda

Just a question I've been pondering all night: what do you think it'll take to get Steph Marbury to come home from China?

Jon Krawczynski

Thad Young's last 15 games: 16.3 ppg, 49% FG, 6.1 rebs, 3.4 assists, 1.7 steals. Nets are getting a productive player in prime.

Jerry Zgoda

Fresh and warm Wolves Daily video is up: Kevin Garnett returns | Star Tribune startribune.com/video/29284127…

Jon Krawczynski

If there isn't just a tiny portion of you that gets warm fuzzies at thought of KG in a Wolves uni again, well, why folo sports at all?

Othyus Jeffers

I woke up like this...... FLAWLESS!!!!

Jerry Zgoda

Just passed Anthony Bennett in arena corridor heading downstairs to shoot at 10:30 pm. "Got to, man," he said

Jon Krawczynski

Wolves should definitely _ DEFINITELY _ wear throwbacks on Wednesday night against Wizards for KG's debut.

Andy Greder

In moments, joining Sportsnet (@FAN590) to talk Kevin Garnett-to-#Twolves trade. And since it's Canada sports talk, impact on Andrew Wiggins

Othyus Jeffers

Looking for semi truck drivers w/ CDL's! Pleanty of work and opening! If you know of any spread the word

Jon Krawczynski

As if there were any doubt: KG will be wearing No. 21 again. Gonna be a trip to see him in it again.

Jon Krawczynski

Flip says early plan is to play KG 10-20 minutes. Let Bennett, Payne chew up most of minutes.

Jon Krawczynski

I have no idea how this is going to work out with KG in Minnesota. But I can say it's going to be compelling as hell to watch

Jon Krawczynski

Milt Newton told story of players laughing in locker room after a L. Had to pull rooks in and set them straight. Says KG will handle that

Jerry Zgoda

Now this is timing: Tomorrow is the deadline for current season ticket members to renew. Coincidence...or not?

Jon Krawczynski

Doc on KG: ""He's the most loyal human being alive. He's going home. It's where started and it's where he's going to end." ¶

Jerry Zgoda

Asked about trading that Miami 1st pick basically for KG, Flip guaranteed KG will have more impact than that pick ever will have

Andy Greder

#Twolves general manager Milt Newton said they were upset with laughter in locker room after a loss. They won't have that problem with KG.

Jerry Zgoda

KG will arrive Saturday, play first game Wednesday vs Wizards at Target Center

Darren Wolfson

(con.) Yes, #Twolves like Russell. Figure him 3rd if Okafor-Towns go 1-2. Stanley Johnson and Mudiay also guys they like. Probably more too.

Darren Wolfson

Flip makes it official: no KG tomorrow night. ... #Twolves want Okafor or Towns more than ever now and have KG mentor next year.

Andy Greder

Kevin Garnett will likely play his first game back with #Twolves on Wednesday, coach Flip Saunders said.

Jon Krawczynski

Flip says Kg will arrive Saturday but won't play till Wednesday at home

Andy Greder

#Twolves general manager Milt Newton said Thad Young's reps communicated to team that he was going go opt out at end of this year.

Jerry Zgoda

Flip surprised so many reporters stuck around for the announcement of signing Lorenzo Brown for rest of the season

Jon Krawczynski

Next to Rubio, KG is my grandma's favorite. So it's a banner day for her. I know this is essential information for all of you.

Jon Krawczynski

Call from AP Sports Grandma: "Jon! Did you know Kevin Garnett is coming back? Oh I'm SO happy!"

Darren Wolfson

For those asking if they should plan on seeing KG tomorrow: again, has 48 hrs to report. No pressure on him to get here. So plan on waiting.

Jon Krawczynski

13 trades, 37 players moved today. Unreal

Jon Krawczynski

A big factor in bringing in KG, even at this age: his winning mentality. On a team that has lost for too long, they welcome that.

Jerry Zgoda

This by far is not scientific but I've got to believe among happiest teams today is Brooklyn, even if that BLopez deal fell apart

Jerry Zgoda

For those keeping an eye on such things, did the secondary ticket market really spike with today's trade news?

Andy Greder

#Twolves owner Glen Taylor on Garnett's return: "I look forward to renewing our basketball and personal relationship with Kevin."

Andy Greder

#Twolves owner Glen Taylor on Garnett's return: "It's just that he's a player. But I think that opens up that (part ownership) possibility."

Jerry Zgoda

For those asking, I wouldn't rush out on Stubhub and buy tickets for tomorrow's Suns game intending to see KG play

Jerry Zgoda

You can probably go back to Flip-Mac bringing Terry Porter, Sam Mitchell in to mentor a young KG in partly explaining today's trade

Jerry Zgoda

Still waiting for Flip, but am told his thinking is team, beyond Ricky, lacks vocal leadership. This move probably addresses that some.

Jerry Zgoda

Trade call not yet done so no Flip comments, but KG's role will be measured on-court but expanded off court in practice, locker room

Darren Wolfson

The paying job is interfering w/ prime Twitter time. But fascinating to see tweets loving this move and a lot who hate it. #twolves

Jon Krawczynski

A bit of semantics: wouldn't actually be an extension for KG. Would technically be a new deal for him. either way, 2 more years

Darren Wolfson

FWIW: @ASM_SPORTS still lists KG as a client, and they tweeted the trade news. But told Charles Banks is more KG's point person. #twolves
