Martin Falling Out of Favor in Minnesota

Martin, who has missed the team's last nine games after suffering a wrist injury, is shooting a career-low 37.5 percent from the floor while averaging 11.3 points, 1.3 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 22.6 minutes per contest this year.

His decline in production and injury problems, along with the development of Zach LaVine, have pushed Martin out of the starting rotation for the first time since he joined Minnesota in 2013-14.

Broussard indicated that Minnesota is also looking to move Adreian Payne and is open to dealing Ricky Rubio. The Wolves would like to add Miles Plumlee from the Milwaukee Bucks, according to Broussard.

The Wolves are a team to watch in the coming years with a young core of LaVine, Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns. By moving the 33-year-old Martin, Minnesota could try to add another young playmaker to its roster.
