Timberwolves Juggle Roster

Timberwolves Juggle Roster

The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to a trade with Oklahoma City for guard Kevin Martin that also allowed them to land swingman Corey Brewer in free agency.

The Wolves agreed to terms with Martin on a four-year contract worth nearly $30 million last week. Rather than sign him outright, they decided on Wednesday to execute a sign-and-trade deal with the Thunder to help them free up more cap room to land Brewer. Luke Ridnour is headed from Minnesota to Milwaukee in the three-team trade, according to a person with knowledge of the deal. The person requested anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced.
