MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Timberwolves have acquired guard Kevin Martin from the Oklahoma City Thunder in a three-team trade sending guard Luke Ridnour to the Milwaukee Bucks. The framework of the deal was agreed to earlier in the week, and the Wolves announced it was finalized on Thursday night. Martin was a sign-and-trade acquisition that gives the Wolves the veteran shooting guard with an outside touch they've needed for years. The Bucks get Ridnour, another veteran who was playing out of position at shooting guard, and a 2014 second-round draft pick from the Wolves. The Thunder get the draft rights to Szymon Szewczyk from the Bucks. The Thunder also sent an undisclosed amount of cash to both the Wolves and the Bucks.
