The 2006-07 Minnesota Timberwolves season was the team's 18th in the NBA. They began the season hoping to improve upon their 33-49 output from the previous season. However, they came one win shy of tying it, finishing 32-50.[1]

It was Kevin Garnett's final season of his first stint with the Timberwolves as he was traded to the Boston Celtics following the season. He would eventually win a championship with the Celtics in 2008. Garnett returned to Minnesota midway in the 2014-15 season for his second stint. Also following the season, tragedy struck as Eddie Griffin died in an automobile accident on August 17, 2007.
