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."
