Kevin Garnett's recent two-year deal with the Timberwolves could turn out to be historic.

The contract calls for $16 million if Garnett decides to play both seasons, pushing his career earnings to $343.4 million over 22 seasons.

That would be the highest in NBA history, according to Business Insider.

Garnett, 39, came into the league out of high school in 1995. Minnesota selected him No. 5 overall.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported his most recent contract includes a provision allowing Garnett to move into a management role with the team if he chooses not to play the 2016-17 season.

Either way, Garnett's playing career will be one of the most financially rewarding in any sport.
