Nothing is official yet, but quiet optimism is emanating from Brooklyn when it comes to Kevin Garnett playing for one more season. Garnett has predictably said nothing since the Nets' season ended with a second-round loss to Miami, but the whispers are starting to get louder that KG, at 38, wants to play out the final season of his contract, which is valued at $12 million. "I think he wants to keep going," said one source close to the situation. ESPN.com

Kevin Garnett of the Brooklyn Nets has sold his home in Concord, Mass., for $3.635 million. The veteran NBA forward-center paid $4.625 million for the modern home in September 2007 after being dealt by the Minnesota Timberwolves to the Boston Celtics. He listed the property for sale in October 2013 following an off-season trade that sent him from Boston to Brooklyn with Paul Pierce and others. Los Angeles Times

Still, all indications have been — despite the drop in production this season — Garnett will be back in Brooklyn for what would be the 20th season of his stellar NBA career. The fact is $12 million is an awful lot of money – no matter how much you’ve made in the past – and after playing much, much better over the final few months of the season, it would be easy to see Garnett agreeing to rejoin Pierce for one final season in Brooklyn before riding off into the sunset next summer.

James also added that despite the trade that sent both Celtics packing for Brooklyn last summer, he still associates them with the C's franchise that they carried for so long. "As weird as it is seeing them in black and white, you still see green on them," he said. "You still see green on Paul. You still see green on KG. Those guys still just have championship DNA. Being able to compete against those guys in a series is the ultimate for a competitor." Celtics Blog
