Kevin Martin: "This is such a fun team to play on. Nobody is trying to lead the league in scoring here. Everybody has the big picture of getting to the playoffs. That’s one thing I told young guys that have never been there, it’s about team ball and just playing for one another. That’s what makes teams fun to play on." Minneapolis Star-Tribune

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. But when teams came calling in July, the game suddenly turned serious. “Everybody says free agency is fun. It wasn't fun for me,” Martin said before his Minnesota Timberwolves hosted the Thunder on Friday night. “That's a big decision to make for yourself and for your family. I thought it was going to be fun. It was stressful.” Oklahoman

Martin said he had an idea last year would be his only season in Oklahoma City.

Sometimes both sides have to make tough decisions.” Oklahoman

Kevin Martin came back to practice today after a week away even though his Achilles tendon still is sore. He returned along with his teammates who hadn't practiced since Saturday's listless loss to the Raptors at Target Center because there's important work to be done with five uninterrupted practices this week before the team's final three preseason games.

What was the best move by Minnesota this summer? Ricky Rubio: There's been a lot of good moves, but (Nikola) Pekovic was a very important piece for us. (Chase) Budinger is a key player for us. Kevin Martin will give us extra scoring punch. He's been with coach (Rick Adelman) for several seasons scoring 20-plus points, which means his system works for him. What about Corey Brewer? RR: I like that one too. (Andrei) Kirilenko was taking this team to another level defensively and with him leaving, it's good to have Corey Brewer, who can also give us that. HoopsHype
