Kevin Martin Says He Considered Returning to OKC Thunder On The Cheap

When Kevin Martin agreed to a four-year, $28 million deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, it seemed like a solid situation—good money for him and a nice deal for the Wolves. But, as he told the Minnesota Star-Tribune, the guard thought hard about returning to the OKC Thunder for less money: “He chose the Wolves’ four-year offer worth nearly $28 million over a Thunder proposal that was significantly restricted by the luxury tax. Asked if he seriously considered returning to Thunder for relatively little money but the chance to win a championship, he said, ‘Always. I also feel like I found the same thing with Minnesota being younger. They’ve had some injuries over the years, but they’re a good team, too. I made a decision and I think it’s a great one. I learned from Oklahoma CIty, they’re a great organization. The way KD and Russ approach the game, I  think that’s something I’ll bring to Minnesota.'”
