Kevin Martin will come off the bench in Minnesota under interim head coach Sam Mitchell. Justin Termine on Twitter
The Scoop: Mitchell named Zach LaVine the team's starting two-guard on Tuesday, so the flip side of that is that Martin will transition to a sixth man role for the Wolves. Health has been a major issue for Martin throughout his career, so perhaps transitioning to a bench role (and thus seeing fewer minutes per game) will help him stay healthy. Despite a decrease in his workload, Martin should be able to see minutes to turn out standard league value, so he'll make for a decent late-round gamble on draft day for those willing to assume the risk.
