San Antonio Spurs emerge as the strongest contender for Kevin Martin

Published 1 Comments

If Kevin Martin is able to secure his expected contract buyout from the Minnesota Timberwolves, he could very well be on his way to the San Antonio Spurs.

That's because they're considered the strongest contender for the veteran shooting guard's signature, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

The report states the Spurs are the favourites to acquire the 33-year-old from Minnesota, ahead of other playoff contenders in the hunt for him including the Cleveland Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks, and the Houston Rockets.

As an established scorer, Martin was always going to peak the interest of many playoff contending teams once he announced that he would be on the buyout market. He has averaged 17.6 points in 30.5 minutes per game in his career.

Kevin isn't the only guard that has recently been bought out of his contract by the Timberwolves, as Andre Miller has moved on from the side as well. He cleared the waivers on Saturday and is reportedly going to sign for the Spurs too.

In the case of Martin, he has until midnight ET on Tuesday to part ways with Minnesota so that he is playoff-eligible for his next team, whether that be San Antonio or not.
