Wolves Add SG Martin, Resign SF Budinger
The Minnesota Timberwolves were very aggressive in Free Agency on Tuesday, signing two players including the shooting guard they so desperately needed. According to Yahoo! Sports, the Wolves agreed to terms with free agent Kevin Martin on a four-year, $30 million deal.
The 30-year old Martin is a quality outside shooter who hit 43% of his three-point attempts last season with the Oklahoma City Thunder while scoring 14 points per game. Martin also played two seasons under Rick Adelman in Houston between 2010 and 2012, where he averaged 21.3 points on 37% from downtown, and several seasons under Adelman in Sacramento prior to that.
The Wolves were the worst three-point shooting team in the NBA last season.
The team also re-signed Chase Budinger to play small forward. Budinger got three years and $16 million. Both Budinger and Martin are favorites of Adelman.
