Martin's future with Thunder
March, 1, 2013

The Oklahoma City Thunder made the best of a difficult situation when they traded James Harden for Kevin Martin. Harden's contract was running out and they were going to have to fork over a ton of money to keep him with the team long term, so they dealt him for Martin. Granted, Martin doesn't have Harden's all-around game, but he does provide a quality scoring option off the bench and they can still look at their salary-cap situation without cringing.
