MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Flip Saunders says the Minnesota Timberwolves went hard after Kevin Martin in free agency because they were looking for a shooting guard who could give them 17-18 points a game.
Martin says he can do that in his sleep.
Martin met with the media Monday, nearly a month after a sign-and-trade deal with Oklahoma City reunited him with coach Rick Adelman. Martin played for Adelman in Sacramento and Houston and became one of the better scorers in the league. Last season he averaged 14 points per game while taking more of a supporting role with the Thunder.
Martin says he is confident he will be able to quickly regain the scorer's mentality in Minnesota. He says he is shooting to average 22 points per game.
