Wolves fielded offers for Garnett

From the New York Daily News:
Before the Timberwolves went on their best stretch of the season, winning seven of 10 to finally get over the .500 mark and get themselves in the playoff hunt, they broke with tradition and fielded trade offers for Kevin Garnett. "That's really the first time we've ever done that," said one Minnesota executive. But they weren't moved to do anything, despite strong interest from New Jersey and Chicago. The T-Wolves think they have a shot at the playaoffs, so they're not interested in moving Garnett. And if he wants out this summer, he probably is going to have to say that, a la Allen Iverson, to force owner Glen Taylor to accommodate him.
