What Salary Will Kevin Garnett Command?
A big question as to whether or not (Kevin) Garnett comes back will be about how much money he makes going forward. It won’t be the $21 million he earned this season. But it also needs to be commensurate with his performance, which in the playoffs was almost 20 points and 10 rebounds per game. The premium for a player of Garnett’s credentials who puts up those kind of numbers is still very high. Celtics broadcaster Mike Gorman told 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher and Rich show Tuesday he thought Garnett could return for $12-13 million this season, or on a two-year deal for around $20 million. The Celtics would likely be OK with that, but they probably need to sort out those parameters before free agency begins July 1.
