Analysis: The Wolves agreed to terms with Martin on a four-year contract worth nearly $30 million last week. Rather than sign him outright, they decided on Wednesday to execute a sign-and-trade deal with the Thunder to help them free up more cap room to land Brewer. Luke Ridnour is headed from Minnesota to Milwaukee in the three-team trade, according to a person with knowledge of the deal. The person requested anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced.
July 2 4:20 PM PT5:20 PM MT6:20 PM CT7:20 PM ET23:20 GMT7:20 4:20 PM MST6:20 PM EST3:20 UAE (+1)01:2019:20 ET6:20 PM CT22:20 - Martin is leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder to rejoin former coach Rick Adelman with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The person requested anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced.
Analysis: Martin averaged 14.0 points and shot 42.6 percent on 3-pointers last year in a bench role for the Thunder. He will become a starter in Minnesota, where the Timberwolves have been desperately looking for 3-point shooters after finishing last in the league in that department last season. Martin played for Adelman with the Sacramento Kings and Houston Rockets.
