    Kevin Garnett is expected to announce his retirement from the NBA on Friday after agreeing to a contract settlement with the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to a report by the Star Tribune.

    The two sides came to agreement on a buyout on Friday, according to The Associated Press. Garnett, 40, will be waived by the Wolves and collect his entire $8 million salary for next season. That is the same approach the took with Tim Duncan. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because Garnett has not announced his decision.

    Drafted by the Wolves straight out of high school in 1995, Garnett was the face of the franchise for 12 seasons until his July 2007 trade to the Boston Celtics.
