MINNEAPOLIS - Kevin Garnett has purchased 1,000 tickets to Minnesota's next game in appreciation of Timberwolves fans for their welcome of his return to the team.

The Timberwolves made the announcement on 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.

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."
