Garnett, 36, will sign a 3-year, $34 million deal to remain with Doc Rivers and the Celtics.
Garnett had taken several weeks to contemplate retirement before ultimately choosing to return to the Celtics for his 18th NBA season.
Garnett’s resurgence in the second half of the Celtics’ 2011-2012 season was one of the main reasons the team was able to surge all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals. Garnett averaged 16 points, 8 rebounds and a block last year in what was his most productive season since 2008-09.
It remains to be seen whether or not Garnett’s return will have anything to do with the decision of fellow free-agent, Ray Allen. Reports are that Allen is strongly considering the Miami Heat, but that a return to the Celtics has not been ruled out by either party.
