The Big Ticket is coming to a television near you.

Turner Sports announced on Thursday night’s “Inside the NBA” that Kevin Garnett will join the network on a multiyear contract to be part of its “NBA on TNT” coverage. Garnett announced his retirement from the NBA in September.

The 15-time All-Star will get his own weekly segment and “will be joined by special guests from the worlds of entertainment and sports and give fans a colorful look at the game from his unique perspective,” Turner Sports said in a press release Friday. Garnett will join the “Inside the NBA” coverage beginning next Thursday.

KG was drafted out of high school by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the fifth pick in the 1995 NBA Draft and spent parts of 14 seasons with the team over a 21-year career. Garnett also helped lead the Boston Celtics to their 17th NBA title in 2008 in his first of six seasons with the C’s.
