Wolves fan writes a spot-on Kevin Martin scouting report..

Martin is a non-factor on defense and a blackhole on offense, he is a ballstopper of the worst kind; I couldn't count how many times last season when he had the ball and was one pass away from either getting his teammate an open shot or shift the entire defense that was on scramble, but instead he held onto it and let the defense adjust, or how many times he didn't pass on a 2 on 1 or 3 on 1, and chose to take a contested shot that resulted in a miss.

He has always been a streaky shooter and his shot selection and consistency has only gotten worse with age, while his ability to cut inside and finish has greatly diminished with age and injury.

All he still does well on offense is drawing fouls and even that has been diminished as he ages.

Martin was not a starting caliber player on a quality team last season, and he certainly won't be this season at a year older. Not to mention he still has 4 years left on his contract; whichever team that is stupid enough to take that on would do the Wolves a great service.
