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.

Kevin Love Facing Toughest Test of NBA Career with Cleveland Cavaliers

Aug 29 2014 4:08pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Beginning with remarks made in a 2012 interview with Yahoo Sports' Marc J. Spears, Kevin Love has made it clear that, incendiary individual statistics aside, playing for a winner is the only thing that matters. In joining LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland Cavaliers, Love’s long-deferred dream finally came true, accompanied in close tow with an entirely new set of expectations: Win now, win big and win often. Still, there’s one warn ...

Can Kevin Love Accept Diminished Role with Cavaliers?

Aug 28 2014 1:05pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor isn't wrong about the difficulties Kevin Love will face with the Cleveland Cavaliers, but he may have missed the mark on how well the superstar big man will respond to them. Taylor, in an interview with Derek Wetmore of ESPN1500, said: I question Kevin if this is going to be the best deal for him because I think he's going to be the third player on a team. I don't think he's going to get a lot of credit if ...

Predicting the Minnesota Timberwolves' Next Move After Kevin Love Trade

Aug 27 2014 1:02pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Kevin Love era is over for the Minnesota Timberwolves, but the new regime can't be done making moves quite yet.  Flipping the disgruntled power forward for a haul that centered around Andrew Wiggins was only the first step in revamping what's become a rather youthful roster. It can't be the last move, as the Wolves are now committing to a rebuilding process with plenty of promise.  As Bleacher Report's Zach Buckley noted when discussing the topic, Minnesota ...

Splash Brothers Will Prove Golden State Warriors Right About Kevin Love Trade

Aug 26 2014 9:52am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Golden State Warriors had an obvious, pressing need for perennial All-Star Kevin Love. That is not a unique trait, either. Every NBA team could use a 6'10", 260-pound bruiser with a generational gift on the glass, a throwback feel for outlet passing and a high-volume, high-efficiency three-point stroke. What differentiates the Dubs from most other clubs, though, is they had a realistic shot to bring in the big man over ...

Why Klay Thompson Faces Enormous Pressure to Live Up to Superstar Billing

Aug 19 2014 11:05am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Whether they intended on sending the message or not, the Golden State Warriors indirectly told sharpshooter Klay Thompson they value his game more than that of three-time All-Star Kevin Love. The Dubs' decision was never as simple as Thompson vs. Love, but that's how it was received by the masses. With enough people subscribing to that theory, and the time that has passed since the start of tha ...

Will Minnesota Timberwolves Be Better Than We Think Without Kevin Love?

Aug 14 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Unless you’re the 1993-94 Chicago Bulls, marshaled as they were by a coaching maestro in Phil Jackson, losing a top-tier superstar typically doesn’t bode well for one’s near-future prospects. When—not if—the Minnesota Timberwolves finally part ways with all-world forward Kevin Love, in a seemingly imminent trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers, via Fox Sports Ohio's Sam Amico, what hopes they had for the franchise’s first p ...

Andrew Wiggins, Young Timberwolves Core Needs Patience from Flip Saunders

Aug 12 2014 10:35pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

There are enough quotes with the phrase "power in the wrong hands" to create a coffee table book. Usually such phrases are thrown around to describe corrupt politicians, greedy Fortune 500 CEOs or any number of the easily vilified caricatures that exist in today's culture. But the phrase most recently came to mind when assessing the Minnesota Timberwolves' trade of Kevin Love. Mind you, not that specific trade itself. I'm fine wit ...

Flip Saunders patience pays off in Kevin Love trade

Aug 7 2014 11:08am CDT | Source: SBNation

By waiting for the trade market to develop, the Timberwolves made a solid deal to acquire Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett for Kevin Love. Flip Saunders played the Kevin Love situation right, which is a weird thing to say considering the Timberwolves have gone out of their way to screw things up since acquiring the forward back on draft night in 2008. Imagine Love paired with Steph Curry instead of Jonny Flynn, or DeMarcus Cous ...

Timberwolves owner acknowledges Kevin Love likely to be traded this month

Aug 3 2014 8:58am CDT | Source: SBNation

Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor admitted for the first time that Kevin Love is on the trading block. For the first time, the Minnesota Timberwolves aren't hiding from the rumors. Team owner Glen Taylor told the Pioneer Press' Charley Walters that he expects forward Kevin Love to be traded on August 23 or 24. While Taylor would still like to move forward with Love in Minnesota, that likelihood seems all but lost. "I'm saying it's most likely because ...
