MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Kevin Martin is leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder to rejoin former coach Rick Adelman with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

A person with knowledge of the deal says Martin agreed to terms with the Wolves on a four-year deal worth as much as $30 million on Tuesday. The person requested anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced.

Martin averaged 14.0 points and shot 42.6 percent on 3-pointers last year in a bench role for the Thunder. He will become a starter in Minnesota, where the Timberwolves have been desperately looking for 3-point shooters after finishing last in the league in that department last season.

Martin played for Adelman with the Sacramento Kings and Houston Rockets.
