After spending parts of six seasons in Sacramento and a few more in Houston, Oklahoma City Thunder guard Kevin Martin apparently liked the taste of being on a contender.
Outside of his rookie season, Martin played a career low 27 minutes a game this year but he didn’t seem to mind as he thrived in his off the bench role and now the impeding free agent to be would like to return, so much so he’s willing to give the Thunder a discount.
“I’m at a point in my career where I don’t need to get what I can get (monetarily),” he said. “It’s more about happiness, and looking back on this experience, I’ve been on both sides of the fence — being on a championship-caliber team and being on a team trying to make it into the playoffs — so I have a vision of what I want my career to be, and the main thing is happiness and being a part of something special.”
It’s hard to blame K-Mart as the Zanesville native couldn’t ask for a better scenario, something he appears to be fully aware of.
