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 27 2014 7:22pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

2014 Summer TCA Tour - Day 11
When you’re LeBron James, even a simple thing like choosing your number comes with loads of carry-on baggage. Of course he was No, 6 with the Miami Heat, which he changed from No. 23 when he was originally with the Cavaliers. And as you know, earlier today LeBron announced on Instagram (wow) that he’s going back to No. 23, now that he’s back with the Cavs. Because, math. 23 it is! It's only right I go back. 2·3=6 We still family 6. #HomeTeam #StriveForGreatness http://t.co/ ...

Celebrities Visit SiriusXM Studios - May 20, 2014
Talk about a warm NBA welcoming. Andrew Wiggins couldn't even get through his first summer league without being smack in the middle of blockbuster-trade discussions.  There's a lot at stake here for Wiggins, whose projected role and future outlook could change based on where he ends up playing.  As of right now, he's a Cleveland Cavalier, having just signed a two-year rookie deal. That means he's safe for 30 days, the time that must pass before he ...
