MINNESOTA SPORTS ROUNDUP: Martin officially joins Wolves
The Minnesota Timberwolves made it official last night. They have acquired shooting guard Kevin Martin from Oklahoma City in a "sign-and-trade" deal that involved three teams. Martin signed a deal with Oklahoma City as a way to maximize his pay based on the league's collective bargaining agreement, then was traded to Minnesota. The Wolves shipped guard Luke Ridnour to Milwaukee, which then sent recent draftee Szymon Szewczyk to the Thunder.
