Garnett’s Contract Reportedly $123 Million
Kevin Garnett agreed to terms Wednesday night on what could be the richest contract in professional sports history, a six-year deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves reportedly worth as much as $123 million.
Garnett, the charismatic, sky’s-the-limit forward who jumped from high school to the NBA two years ago and helped rescue one of the league’s worst franchises, agreed to the contract extension just hours before a midnight deadline.
Terms were not immediately available, but reports indicated the Wolves and Garnett spent Wednesday ironing out details of a deal worth as much as $123 million. Shaquille O’Neal’s $120 million, seven-year deal with the Lakers is the most lucrative long-term contract ever.
