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.

Saunders says Cassell hurt himself doing his signature dance and that was a reason why the Wolves lost to the Lakers in the 2004 Western Conference Finals. Minnesota Timberwolves guard Kevin Martin paid tribute to Sam Cassell with a toned-down version of Cassell's infamous Big Balls Dance after knocking down a clutch three against the Chicago Bulls on Saturday.

Nov 3 2014 12:35pm CST | Source: The Big Lead

Kevin Martin hit a big three-pointer in Saturday’s Bulls – Timberwolves game. To celebrate, he broke out Sam Cassell’s old “big balls” dance. The NBA fined him for it, as they do whenever anyone does that. This is a battle the NBA has been fighting for awhile now and it is unlikely they ever change their stance on it. The important thing to remember is that basketball players make enough money to throw away $15K on something that just kind of ...
