|(2/20/15) Timberwolves shooting guard Kevin Martin scored 28 points on 10 of 16 shooting from the field in Minnesota's 111-109 win over the Suns Friday.

Report: Timberwolves not expected to buy out Kevin Martin's deal
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/18/15) There is "no way" the Timberwolves buy out guard Kevin Martin's contract, reports USA Today's Sam Amick.
The primary reason Amick lists is that coach Flip Saunders thinks highly of Martin as a player. Martin is averaging 20.2 points and 4.2 rebounds per game. Any potential buyout would happen after Thursday's trade deadline.
Martin signed a four-year, $27.755 million deal with the Timberwolves in 2013.
Amick also reports that the Rockets, Bulls, Wizards, Mavericks and Kings all have interest to some degree in Martin. However, a trade is unlikely to happen.
|Timberwolves guard Kevin Martin will enter year No. 12 looking to play a full 82 games in his career. Martin earned a starting role in his first season with the Timberwolves, but missed 14 games last season, including a seven-game stretch in February due to a non-displaced fracture in his left thumb and a five-game stretch in early April due to a sore right foot injury. Martin played 48 of Minnesota's first 50 games before going down with a broken thumb. Over that span, he averaged 19.0 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 32.3 minutes while shooting 42.6 percent from the field and 39.9 percent from downtown. Once he came back from the thumb injury he averaged 19.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 31.3 minutes while shooting 44.0 percent from the field and 35.4 percent from downtown in 20 of Minnesota's final 25 games. Overall, he averaged 19.1 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists while shooting 43.0 percent from the floor, including 38.7 percent from three-point land in 68 games -- the most he's played since the 2010-11 season with the Rockets. His durability will certainly be a concern for Fantasy owners. Consider him in the mid-rounds, likely as early as the fourth and fifth rounds.
