Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers says he would love to see Kevin Garnett purchase the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor is looking to sell the franchise and Garnett is seriously interested in buying the team that he once starred for during his playing days.
Doc Rivers says he would love to see Kevin Garnett with Minnesota and more former players get into the ownership circle.

Before joining the Clippers, Rivers coached Garnett on the Boston Celtics. The two won the 2008 championship together, defeating the Los Angeles Lakers in the Finals.
KG had a Hall of Fame run with the Timberwolves, playing the first 12 years of his career with the Minneapolis team before he was traded to the Celtics in the summer of 2007.
Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan owns the Charlotte Hornets. It would be special to see Garnett become the second Hall of Fame player to own a team, especially the Timberwolves since the Big Ticket wants to keep the Wolves in Minnesota and has a lot of love for the city and organization.
Rivers and the Clippers played their first scrimmage game on Wednesday down in Orlando, Florida. LAC defeated the Orlando Magic by a final score of 99-90.
The Clippers' first seeding game is on July 30 against LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the Lakers. Most NBA pundits believe the two Los Angeles teams will face each other in the 2020 Western Conference Finals. If that happens, it would certainly be a fun series with a lot of star power.
Once the 2020 playoffs begin, the Clippers will ultimately go as far as superstars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George can lead the team offensively.
