Garnett — the first player McHale and Saunders ever drafted together — was the league MVP in 2004.

“I remember Kevin saying, ‘If we draft a high school kid and it doesn’t work out, we can say we didn’t know any better because it’s our first draft,’ ” Saunders said. “We both were pretty sure walking out of that workout that it was going to work out.”

Wolves’ week ahead

Sunday: 5 p.m. at Brooklyn (FSN)

Monday: 7 p.m. vs. L.A. Clippers (FSN)

Wednesday: 7 p.m. vs. Memphis (FSN)

Friday: 6:30 p.m. at Miami (FSN)
