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.

What Can We Expect from Andrew Wiggins' Rookie Season?

Sep 24 2014 7:27pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

When it comes to Andrew Wiggins, it's easy to get carried away. He was widely viewed as a once-in-a-generation prospect when he was coming out of high school, though his time at Kansas put a slight damper on those expectations. Then he was made the No. 1 pick in a stacked 2014 draft class, which renewed the hype all over again. But the Cleveland Cavaliers didn't hold onto him, instead trading him to the Minnesota Timbe ...

What a Sign-and-Trade for Eric Bledsoe Would Have to Look Like

The differences between Eric Bledsoe and the Phoenix Suns are rapidly becoming irreconcilable, and it's no longer crazy to ask if a divorce is the best thing for both parties. The mechanics of pulling off such a separation, though, are only getting more complicated. In fact, even with the latest intriguing development in the ongoing saga, we're still left with more questions than answers ...

Meet R.J. Hunter, the Top Mid-Major 2015 NBA Draft Prospect

Sep 19 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It's not always easy to judge how valuable a mid-major NBA draft prospect is, as it's tough to translate small-school success to the pro ranks. But sometimes you just know a flat-out baller when you see one. That's the case for 6'5" Georgia State junior R.J. Hunter, the sweet-shooting 2-guard who earned 2013-14 Sun Belt Player of the Year honors. As a sophomore, he scored 18.3 points per game, poured in 100 three-pointers and led the Panthers to the conference title game ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 realisti ...
