 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -If the Minnesota Timberwolves do decide to trade Kevin Garnett, point guard Troy Hudson would like to be on the plane with KG out of the Twin Cities.
Hudson's agent said Friday that he called owner Glen Taylor to say that the point guard would like to play elsewhere next season.
``It's not like I demanded a trade or anything,'' Bill Neff said. ``It's just time to move on.''
Hudson has spent five seasons in Minnesota, with his first one being the best. He averaged 14.2 points and 5.7 assists in 2002-03 and parlayed that into a six-year, $37 million contract. But injuries, and a logjam at point guard last season, have kept him from approaching that production the last four years.
He's started just 39 games in the last four seasons and averaged 5.9 points and 2.1 assists in 34 games last year. Any chance at consistent playing time was lost when Randy Wittman took over for the fired Dwane Casey in January.
``We weren't happy (when Wittman took over),'' Neff said.
Hudson was believed to be in a package with Garnett that the Wolves were shopping to Boston, a deal that appears unlikely to materialize.
``When I read that they were trying to move him to Boston, my reaction was, 'Could you do it faster?''' Neff said. ``He's not in their plans. He wants to play. He can still help someone.''
Timberwolves vice president of basketball operations Kevin McHale declined to comment on the issue through a team spokesman.
Trade speculation surrounding Garnett has ramped up ever since Boston's Danny Ainge acknowledged having talks with McHale about Garnett's availability.
But with an opt-out clause in his contract after next season, Garnett will have plenty of say in where he ends up, if the Timberwolves do decide they would be better off dealing the All-Star forward.
McHale has been more vocal this offseason in saying that he would listen to offers for Garnett, but Taylor has said on more than one occasion that he expects Garnett to be here next season.
Hudson's has three years and more than $18 million left on his deal, which could make him difficult to trade. Neff said the only trade talks he's had direct knowledge of involving his client was a proposal at the trade deadline last season when Detroit offered Nazr Mohammed for Hudson, but that deal never came to fruition.
``Minnesota is not a place we're trying to stay,'' Neff said.
