STORY: Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Garnett announced his retirement after 21 NBA seasons on Friday (September 23).

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Garnett and the Timberwolves reached a contract settlement earlier Friday. Garnett was signed for $8 million this season.

Garnett, 40, easily the most productive player in franchise history, spent 13 1/2 of his 21 NBA seasons with Minnesota.

He was drafted out of high school in 1995 and developed into one of the top power forwards in NBA history.

The 15-time All-Star ranks 17th with 26,071 career points, ninth in career rebounds with 14,662 and 17th in blocked shots with 2,037.
