Wolves sign K-Mart!!!!

Wolves sign Kevin Martin for 4 years, 28 million!!!! I can't believe Flip could restrain himself from going hard after Mayo and got the better fit instead. In getting Bud back and signing Martin, the Wolves upgraded their wing situation like crazy today. I hope they can still get a Kyle Korver/Brandon Rush/Dorell Wright as well

Maybe

Bud's a pretty good defender, Shved will get better. I'm hoping they can get either a 3 and D guy to complement Martin, or another sniper to space the floor for Love/Pek.

All "O", not much "D".

Get ready for some 117-114 games.

A defensive minded wing would be nice, but I think they are right up against the cap, and done in FA (other than resigning Pek after July 10). I think there is some trade value in both JJ Barea and Luke Ridnour, and one of the two will be gone before the season starts. Maybe that brings a defender.

Let's put it this way

Pretty much any 2 guard is an instant upgrade over Ridnour as a starter, let's be real.

Wolves signing...

That means Kirilenko is gone since they spent his money... and he was their defense often times guarding as many as 3 players at a time. He was a blast to watch play and I wish him luck and hope he ends up with a nice contract with a top team.

Clippers trading for a white

Clippers trading for a white guy is far more surprising and less beaten into the ground. Just my opinion though.

And the black player is good too and gets to wear the same uniform!

Good news for the

Good news for the Timberwolves. Kevin Martin seems like a good fit and he's a solid scorer.

I'm also glad for the Thunder because this forces Scott Brooks to play Jeremy Lamb.

Could

Are there any teams that are looking for a Backup PG that have a Defensive wing they would trade for either Ridnour or JJ?

Depending on what happens

Depending on what happens with jarret jack, if he's healthy, Brandon rush would be a good 3 and D guy. He's also more fitting into a ball movement system like what adelman runs. But if you're looking for cheap free agent options, there's dorell wright and another former adelman player, Francisco Garcia.

To be fair defensive wings

To be fair defensive wings aren't the most expensive free agents out there. Ronnie or Corey Brewer are probably still within the T-Wolves price range.

Bringing back Corey Brewer

Bringing back Corey Brewer would be an intriguing move...

They needed shooters, so its a good move on that front, but who is going to play defense? Cause Minnesota doesnt defend well and martin doesnt defend well either

4 years and 28 million is a

4 years and 28 million is a very fair deal for Martins services. I kind of shocked the Thunder couldn't convince him to stay with a similar deal. On the other hand Brooks really needs to play Lamb now which I like a lot. Sefolosha will still start and Lamb will play like 20 to 25 mins a game now. I never thought Martin was really a good fit for OKC but for 7 million a year the should have kept him imo.
