NBA: Timberwolves and Kevin Martin Agree on 4-Year, $28 M Deal

Jul 3 2013, 1:36am CDT | by

The Minnesota Timberwolves and shooting guard Kevin Martin agreed on a four-year deal reportedly worth $28 million.

It sure looks like guard Kevin Martin will be joining the Minnesota Timberwolves.

ESPN reports Martin gave his verbal commitment to the team on Tuesday evening to sign a four-year deal in the $30 million range. Yahoo! Sports via Sports Illustrated revealed the deal to be worth approximately $28 million. 

Martin revealed to USA Today Sports' Sam Amick that Minnesota was his first choice outside of his former team, the Oklahoma City Thunder. He also went on to say the Timberwolves' need for a shooting guard piqued his interest. 

"Minny was my first option outside OKC, so I've got to take it. Especially being (with coach Rick) Adelman, and their starting lineup just needed a two-guard, so I feel like it's a perfect fit. I'm not one to play around. I know where my heart is."

Amick says the deal cannot be formalized until the free agent moratorium is lifted on July 10. ESPN confirms Martin wanted to reunite with Adelman, who was his coach with the Sacramento Kings. 

Martin's impending signing coincides with the Timberwolves agreeing to a three-year, $16 million deal with free agent small forward Chase Budinger, per the Associated Press. 

As a member of the Thunder, Martin averaged 14 points and 2.3 rebounds per outing. In his eight-year NBA career, he has averaged 17.8 points while shooting 38 percent from three-point distance.

Jul 21 2014 12:56am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Sports Awards 2014  - Backstage & Audience
Klay Thompson has steadily improved every year of his young NBA career, but he must truly elevate his game in 2014-15 to justify the Golden State Warriors’ loyalty. The Dubs have a legitimate shot at unloading heavy salary in David Lee’s contract while acquiring a young, top-10 player in the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Kevin Love.  The linchpin in this potential deal is Thompson. While the Warriors held their cards tight to their vest, the Cleveland Cavaliers recently joined the Love sweepstakes ...

Minnesota Timberwolves Must Stay Patient with Kevin Love Trade

Jul 17 2014 1:12pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Celebrities Visit SiriusXM Studios - May 20, 2014
Despite what the swirling trade rumors might suggest, the clock hasn't started ticking for the Minnesota Timberwolves or their franchise face, Kevin Love. Eventually, the Wolves will need to do something with the double-double machine who has major-market dreams and a desire to win, itches that the organization have been unable to scratch. For the time being, though, Minnesota is right to wait for the market to bear something of value for the three-time All-Star. The Timberwolves know ...

Memorial Tribute To Tony Gwynn
Like every team that finishes the NBA season with a loss, the Oklahoma City Thunder have some work to do this offseason. Unlike most of those teams, however, the Thunder aren't lacking in top-shelf talent. They just need to shore up a few minor weaknesses. In fact, OKC truly needs to make only one move this summer: acquire a 2-guard who can really shoot. Derek Fisher has decided to take up the clipboard, and Caron Butler is almost certain to leave OK ...

Flip Saunders must have quite the appetite, because his plate with the Minnesota Timberwolves is overwhelmingly full.  He's just unsure whether he'll have a helping of Kevin Love.

Is Chandler Parsons the Ideal Trade Chip to Dangle in Kevin Love Deal?

Bosnia and Herzegovina's Nikola Pekovic
The Minnesota Timberwolves may not have to decide between win-now and win-later pieces in their potential return package for All-NBA forward Kevin Love. Not if the star-searching Houston Rockets come calling with an offer built around Chandler Parsons, a proven commodity with substantial room to still raise his ceiling. The 25-year-old has made statistical gains in each of his three NBA seasons. During the 2013-14 campaign, he set career marks in points (16.6), re ...
