Kevin Garnett retires after 21 seasons

MINNEAPOLIS- Kevin Garnett has posted a video on his Instagram account saying "farewell" and "thank you" after 21 seasons in the NBA.          

Garnett posted the video on Friday, four days before the Minnesota Timberwolves are set to open training camp. A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that Wolves plan to waive Garnett so he can collect all of his $8 million salary for next season. That's what the San Antonio Spurs did for Tim Duncan when he retired this summer. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the waiver move has not been completed.           

The video shows Garnett walking around Target Center by himself. He says he never expected to feel the love he did during his NBA career.           

It ends with Garnett saying "We going to be all right, man. I don't expect this to be easy. But so far, so good. Stay tuned."
