Flip Saunders wants Kevin Martin to play better defense this season. Minneapolis Star-Tribune
The Scoop: "Everybody talks about [Martin's] lack of defense. You've got to have the right mindset," said Saunders. "I'm going to challenge him to have that defensive mindset. Is he ever going to be all-team defense? No, I'm not asking him to do that. But I am asking him to sacrifice the things he needs to do within a team concept." For fantasy owners, the concern with Martin is always health. He only made it through 68 games last season, and his contributions to the stat sheet are predominately focused on points, treys, and free throws. Martin will be a risk-reward pick in the later rounds of drafts.
