Seems like the Spurs are interested in a roster addition after all. After passing on acquiring waived veterans Anderson Varejao and Joe Johnson, San Antonio has expressed interest in guard Kevin Martin, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.
ESPN sources say buyout talks continue for Minnesota's Kevin Martin, with San Antonio emerging as the favorite to land him if deal is struck— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 27, 2016
Kevin Martin must be bought out by Tuesday to be playoff-eligible; sources say San Antonio's pitch, among many suitors, is strongest so far.— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 27, 2016
Martin is averaging his lowest minutes played since his rookie season, in favor of developing Minnesota's young roster. He is a year removed from averaging 20 points and 3.6 rebounds -- his highest marks since the 2010-2011 season. The Timberwolves veteran is a pure scorer, and could provide additional offense from behind the arc in the absence of Manu Ginobili.
Stay tuned for further developments.
The Spurs are reportedly signing recently-waived veteran point guard Andre Miller.
