Marc Stein of ESPN initially reported that the Minnesota Timberwolves and veteran scorer Kevin Martin, whom had been languishing on the bench as the T-Wolves groom their youngsters, were discussing a contract buyout and that the San Antonio Spurs were the favorites to land K-Mart.

Several hours after that message was birthed into the basketball world, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports’ The Vertical reported that Andre Miller, a former Minnesota reserve guard whom was waived earlier this week, had cleared waivers and had inked a deal with San Antonio.

Charania also reports that San Antonio will have to clear a roster spot to pickup Miller, and whom gets waived is to be decided by Sunday.
Miller, 39-years-old, appeared in 26 games for the Timberwolves this season, averaging 3.4 points and 2.2 assists per game in spot minutes. He gives the Spurs some security at point guard behind Tony Parker and Patty Mills, and he fits that steady Spurs culture.
