With Kevin Love on the verge of being shipped to Cleveland for the last two No. 1 overall draft picks, Minnesota Timberwolves president and head coach Flip Saunders want to keep veterans like Kevin Martin and Corey Brewer around, according to Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

It had sort of been assumed that Martin would be involved in any Love deal, as he was signed to a four year, $27.8 million contract last summer. Even though he averaged 19.1 points per game last season, the 31-year-old's value is much lower than it was a year ago because he didn't defend well or get to the free throw line as much as usual. As CBSSports.com's Zach Harper noted, the Wolves would probably have to attach a pick or player to move him. If Saunders wants to remain competitive, which is what it looks like, then his experience and scoring ability might be worth more to Minnesota than it would to a potential trade partner.
