MINNEAPOLIS — Kevin Garnett has purchased 1,000 tickets to Minnesota’s next game to thank Timberwolves fans for giving him a warm welcome in his return to the team.

The Timberwolves made the announcement Sunday morning. They host the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night. The freebies courtesy of the 15-time All-Star power forward will be available on the team’s website on Monday morning. The first 500 fans to claim them will get a pair of seats each.

Garnett said in a statement distributed by the team that the response and support he’s received since the Wolves reacquired him in a trade “has been nothing short of amazing” and “unbelievable.”
