Minnesota Timberwolves Meeting With Chase Budinger, Kevin Martin

The Minnesota Timberwolves had said going in to NBA Free Agency that their top priority would be to find a starting caliber two-guard. To back up the early reports, Minnesota is wasting no time in setting up meetings. The Timberwolves will first be meeting with in house free agent Chase Budinger, before having a chat with Kevin Martin.

From Sam Amick of USA Today:

Budinger and Martin are both expected to be highly pursued in free agency, but the Timberwolves could have a leg up by getting meetings in early.

Two other names to watch as the Timberwolves begin their desperate search for a starting shooting guard are O.J. Mayo and J.J. Redick.

Free agency kicks off just after midnight, so be sure to stay tuned to throughout the free agency period as we keep you up to date with the latest news and rumors from around the league.
