T-Wolves To Ink Free Agent

T-Wolves To Ink Free Agent

The Timberwolves have a new starting shooting guard.  Multiple outlets report Minnesota has signed unrestricted free agent Kevin Martin.  The deal can’t be made official until July 10th.  Martin played for Oklahoma City last year, averaging 14 points on 45-percent shooting and .426-percent from behind the arc.  Yahoo Sports reports the deal will be for four years and worth 28-million-dollars.

Chase Budinger  is returning to the Timberwolves.  Yahoo! Sports reports the 25-year-old forward has agreed to a three-year contract worth 16-million-dollars, with a player option in the final year of the deal.  The Arizona product was acquired in a trade with Houston just before last year’s NBA Draft.  Budinger averaged 9.4 points in just 33 games this past season due to a knee injury that required surgery.
