Move to Minnesota was a tough decision for Kevin Martin

Free agency wasn't what Kevin Martin thought it would be. The former Thunder guard assumed becoming an unrestricted free agent for the first time would be exhilarating, a liberating process in which he, at 30 years old, finally controlled his destiny.

Kevin Martin helps pave the way for Wolves' rare 3-0 start

A clutch overtime performance in the Timberwolves' season opener and his teammates' all-around aptitude Friday largely overshadowed a slow start to Kevin Martin's time in Minnesota.

Wolves play to top of their ability -- even defensively -- in upset of OKC

MINNEAPOLIS -- Vast potential, packed into a 6.9-second window. Desperately seeking to provide Oklahoma City some semblance of momentum, Kevin Durant misfired on a contested 3-pointer.

Timberwolves-Knicks Preview

Shutting down one of the NBA's elite players put the Minnesota Timberwolves on the cusp of their best start in 12 years.
