As rumored in some of the T'Wolves-Warriors trades, Kevin Martin would be part of the swap. Would Martin actually be a a slight upgrade over Klay Thompson?

Not when you factor in defense. Thompson rates two points per 100 possessions better on defense than Martin by real plus-minus, and in fact better on offense too: http://espn.go.com/nba/statistics/rpm/_/sort/RPM/position/2

But it's not the kind of enormous, team-changing drop-off Thompson supporters would suggest.
