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.

TimberWolves moving on without Love

Sep 30 2014 7:14pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

MANKATO, Minn. — The Kevin Love era officially ended in Minnesota in August when he was traded to Cleveland to team up with LeBron James and the Cavaliers. In retrospect, it may have been over far sooner. It may have ended on that January day in 2012 when former Timberwolves President David Kahn refused to offer him a max contract extension. It may have ended on Jan. 8 when a frustrated Love lit into J.J. Barea and Dante Cunningham for their attitudes in his comments to the pr ...
