Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Rather than retire after 17 years in the NBA, Kevin Garnett has reportedly decided to return for another season and will remain with the Celtics.

The Boston Herald reported Saturday that the 36-year-old Garnett is close to working out a deal for at least two years and possibly three with the Celtics.

Garnett, who averaged 15.8 points and 8.2 rebounds over 60 games in his fifth season with the Celtics, was due to become an unrestricted free agent on Sunday. He earned $21.2 million last season.

A 14-time All-Star and the 2004 MVP, Garnett has been instrumental in Boston's success. The Celtics won the NBA title in 2008 and have made it to at least the Eastern Conference finals in two of the last three seasons.

Garnett played his first 12 years with Minnesota.
