Wolves Updates 4/7

Garnett on whether he could ever see himself playing for another team:
No. Not at this point, but who knows?

From Chris Sheridan/ESPN:
...after speaking to KG and those around him, I came away a little more convinced that we may never hear him declare "I want out."

Sheridan asks Garnett if 30 is too early for him to
"have started building a legacy":
"I don't know. It's all about how you leave the game and how people assess your play and your career, and if you made any impact on the game," Garnett said. "One day I think you guys will do that, but I don't think today is that day."

From Marc Stein/ESPN:
The consistent word you hear in GM circles these days is that the Wolves are going to strongly consider trading KG for the first time this summer...
However ...
If you give the interview a good read, it seems rather clear that Garnett, as ever, doesn't want to leave his beloved 'Sota unless he's absolutely, positively exhausted every last shred of hope. The Wolves, meanwhile, are clinging (at least for the moment) to their long-held policy of not shopping Garnett unless he asks to be shopped, according to NBA front-office sources.

Stein also talks to Mad Dog about Garnett and the team.

From Marc Berman/The New York Post:
At the trading deadline, the Knicks inquired about Garnett, who remained noncommittal on his Timberwolves' future this week. The Knicks again will come knocking this summer, offering up a package starting with Channing Frye.

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press:
The Wolves' Ricky Davis will host Easter dinner Sunday night for 25 children and their families at the Graves 601 Hotel in Minneapolis. It's an idea he initiated on his own, aside from required promotional appearances with the team.
Davis is one of the team's most active players in the community, which goes against his reputation in some circles as a flashy, me-first showboat...
