Kevin Martin reportedly set to sign with San Antonio Spurs

Published Add your comment

The San Antonio Spurs are easily the second best team in the NBA right now behind the Golden State Warriors, and will surely be ready to pounce if the Warriors ever do slip up.

Unfortunately for every other team in the NBA, however, the Spurs are about to get even better with a potential new signing. 

That is thanks to the soon-to-be-confirmed news that San Antonio has apparently agreed to a deal with Kevin Martin, who had his contract bought out by the Minnesota Timberwolves last week.

The news was revealed by ESPN's Marc Stein, who cited league sources when saying that the veteran shooter was joining the NBA Finals contenders.

This isn't the Spurs' first foray into bringing in a free agent from the buyout market, having already signed  veteran point guard Andre Miller as Coach Popovich looks to bring in even more experience as his side gear up for another playoff run.

In 39 games played so far this season, the 33-year-old Martin averaged 10.6 points per contest coming off the bench. He's also a lifetime 38.5 percent shooter from 3-point range.

While the Spurs didn't exactly have a pressing need for another shooter, it doesn't help to have an experienced one like Martin stashed on the bench to be called upon when needed.
