OKC Thunder: Kevin Martin has been one of NBA's most efficient offensive players

If Thunder coach Scott Brooks sticks to his usual starting lineup with Thabo Sefolosha at shooting guard, Martin's instant offense off the bench could give OKC the league's top reserve player for a second straight season.

Martin and Brooks have worked together before. As assistant coaches with the Sacramento Kings in 2006-07, Brooks and Thunder assistant Rex Kalamian coached Martin during his breakout season as a 23-year-old.

“Our coaching staff has some history with him and knows him intimately. Obviously, I consulted with them,” Presti said. “I think that definitely helps. In speaking with those guys, they're pretty excited about having Kevin Martin and they know him very, very well on a personal note and on a basketball note as well. That's going to be important for us.”
