The Minnesota Timberwolves are expected to pursue Kevin Garnett for a ceremonial role in their ownership when he retires from the NBA, according to sources.

Garnett has two seasons remaining on his contract with the Boston Celtics, but may play just one more season before reuniting with Flip Saunders.

"The opportunity will be there for him," one source said, "but there's nothing decided yet."

Garnett was with the Timberwolves from 1995 until his trade to the Celtics in 2007.
