Kahn: Kevin Martin NOT coming to Wolves, in so many words!

Just heard the last half of David Kahn getting interviewed on PA's show on KFAN. I missed the start, but at the end PA summarized that Kahn said Al Jefferson will not be traded before the deadline. Not on the PODCAST yet, but I'm sure you can find it in an hour or two.

The part I heard was Kahn saying the next biggest trade targets on the Wolves have been a tie between Kevin Love and Jonny Flynn. Thought the Flynn detractors might find that interesting. PA asked if teams were asking about Brewer, and Kahn said no, and added "not yet" like he figured that would change, then went on to compliment CB and added a little humor about Corey finally starting to not look surprised when he drains a three.

Kahn also mentioned he doubts Rubio will try to get a buyout to come to the NBA next season. There was no hedging, as Kahn will sometimes do, saying it is highly, highly, highly, unlikely Rubio leaves this summer. Kahn mentioned that Rubio's current team paid $5.3 million to buyout out his contract last summer. Kahn didn't seem overly concerned because he sees Rubio making progress, including gaining upper body strength.

On to Kevin Martin. PA tried to ask about a couple players w/o asking directly about players (hinting). Without talking about Martin by name, Kahn made it clear he did not like Martin's contract, no hedging. Anybody proposing a Martin to the Wolves deal can stop, it ain't happening.

PA tried to do a similar question about Rudy Gay, but Kahn wasn't going to bite on that one, and that was pretty much the end of the interview. At first I thought Kahn shied away because PA was a little too specific in his question, but I suppose it could be that Kahn is interested in RG and doesn't want to say anything that could effect future or current negotiations. As I mentioned earlier, I missed the start of the interview, but Kahn's interviews w/ PA are usually pretty good, so it you can find the PODCAST it is probably worth listening.
