Kevin Garnett is the highest-paid player in NBA history, making $327 million in wage since he was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves in 1995.
Garnett was recently traded back to Minnesota, & it sounds like he's designs to stick with the team long-term.

According to Charley Walters of the Pioneer Press, Garnett wishes to play for more seasons & then form a group with coach & president Flip Saunders to buy the team in 2017.

From Walters:
The Wolves, for whom [owner Glen Taylor] paid $88 million in 1994, were valued at $625 million last January by Forbes. Taylor, who turns 74 in April, is amenable to taking in more limited partners. But he's not interested in selling his team until he finds out what the Atlanta Hawks, who are for sale and currently are taking bids, end up going for.
Garnett told Yahoo Sports back in November, "I need to buy the Timberwolves. Put a group together & possibly some day try to buy the team. That is what I need."

He'll be 41 years elderly at the finish of the 2016-17 season.

Michael Jordan, the only former player who is now a majority owner of an NBA franchise, told ESPN last fall that he'd like to see more players follow his path to the front office.
