Marc Stein tweeted about the Minnesota Timberwolves being in buyout talks with Kevin Martin (https://twitter.com/ESPNSteinLine/status/703052857386278912):

Kevin Martin and the Timberwolves in advanced buyout negotiations to make him free agent by playoff-eligibility deadline, league sources say

I would go for Kevin Martin before Joe Johnson at this point. Martin can still score 15 to 20 points per game and hit some big shots in the right situation. The Cavaliers should be trying to sign him.

I wouldve given a 2nd rounder for him. Hope he doesn't go back to SacTown

I'd like the Kings to go for him (we really, really need a starting SG), but he'll get offers from teams with better playoff hopes. Maybe he'll want to try and help get us there, but I kind of doubt it.

Bring back Adelman, he would follow that coach till the end of time. Rondo would hate him tho.

He'd work great in OKC as another shooter to spread the floor.

Sacramento already has several wing shooters. Bellinelli just needs to get his groove back, while Collison, Casspi, McLemore even Gay are all shooting a decent clip. Martin would be wasting his time with that team.

Ya I'm glad we got J.J. but I think I'd rather Martin if I could choose between the 2 for this year's Heat roster.

Me too, I'm glad we got JJ but would preferred the better shooter. Anyways JJ is more versatile. I'm happy with the move.

Most of the time we get nothing out of our shooting guard. Ideally, we'd have a good 3 and D guy, and if McLemore would become the player he has the potential to be we'd be fine, but getting someone other than Collison to routinely contribute shooting from a guard position would help this team a lot.

Marco should be that guy on offense, but he hasn't gotten his groove back all year, so I'm not expecting it now.

Knicks have tried to trade for him a couple of times. Can't imagine he'd want to come to this mess though.

Still some contenders who need shooting. OKC, Boston maybe, Cleveland always a possibility

Yeah, I read something like that too. The least the Spurs need is another great shooter.

OKC should be after him again. Outside the year they had him and the Harden days... that have had pure crap at the shooting guard.... when it comes to shooting.

Westbrook-Martin-Durant-Ibaka-Adams would be very dynamic.

I mean Roberson gets left wide open because he cannot shoot

Still, Sacramento is wasting its time getting any veterans at this point. Really, Sacramento is wasting its time with DeMarcus Cousins. There's no way that relationship is working out in the long-term. Sacramento's rebuild starts in the front office and center around trading Cousins for assets to pair with guys like Willie Cauley-Stein and Ben McLemore.
