In a move that will hurt one Western Conference contender and perhaps create another, the Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to terms with former Oklahoma City Thunder shooting guard Kevin Martin on a four-year contract that could be worth as much as $30 million. "Minny was my first option outside OKC, so I've got to take it," Martin told USA TODAY Sports shortly after giving a verbal agreement on the deal that can't be formalized until the free agency moratorium lifts on July 10. "Especially being (with coach Rick) Adelman, and their starting lineup just needed a two-guard, so I feel like it's a perfect fit. I'm not one to play around. I know where my heart is."

Darren Wolfson: #Twolves haven't called on Belinelli, per a source. All signs point to the focus being on Mayo, Redick, Martin. Others likely a tier below. Twitter @DarrenWolfson

Minnesota called Oklahoma City swingman Kevin Martin right at 12:01 a.m., according to sources with knowledge of the conversation, and was soon followed by a call from the Bucks. ESPN.com

There's a growing belief that the Thunder's chances of hanging on to Martin are dwindling fast given how close they are to the luxury-tax threshold already. Sources say New Orleans will go after him if it can't land Evans and there will be other suitors, too. ESPN.com
