He is playing at a level that if he were to opt out of his contract at the end of this season, he would be among the more sought-after free agents. A league executive told CSNNE.com on Saturday that the market for Green is as strong, "if not stronger", than it is for Rajon Rondo, who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. "They're two totally different players and their roles with a team are different, too," he said. "But Green can do a lot of things to help just about any team, as long as you're not making him the guy you build around. Green's the guy you add to the guy you're trying to build around." CSNNE.com

Saunders said the team is talking to agents and looking through Development League prospects for potential help. “We’re going to have to wait and see if we can bring somebody in who we think is going to be serviceable and can help,” he said. Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Martin will be examined again in the coming days to see if surgery will be performed. The Wolves termed him out indefinitely, but the absence likely will be at least six weeks. The Wolves can petition the NBA for a roster exception so they could sign a player without having to waive one, but to do so they would have make three players inactive for the next 10 days. Martin and Rubio are certainties for that, but Saunders wants to wait and see if Pekovic or Turiaf will be ready to play before that. “I don’t think there’s anybody as good as Pekovic out there right now,” Saunders said. “Guys who aren’t playing in our league, there’s probably a reason.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune
