Garnett has been traded to the Timberwolves in exchange for small forward Thaddeus Young.
The future Hall of Famer was drafted by the Timberwolves in 1995 with the fifth overall pick, and he played with them for 12 seasons while making 15 All-Star Games throughout his career.
The 38-year-old requested to have his no-trade clause waived, and he will be able to finish his career in Minnesota as he wished.
Garnett was unable to win a championship before joining the Celtics, but he was an elite player while setting career highs in the 2003-04 season with 24.2 points and 13.9 rebounds per game.
Although he is a shell of his former self, the Timberwolves are hoping Garnett can mentor young and rising stars such as Andrew Wiggins.
