According to sources, the New York Knicks have welcomed back veteran forward Kenyon Martin. Yahoo! Sports says the 35-year old has agreed to a 10-day contract.
Martin could be the post player they need for the remainder of the season. Previously, he played with Knicks stars Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd and J.R. Smith
Marc J. Spears Reports:
The Knicks have been in need of another post player since veteran big men Rasheed Wallace and Marcus Camby have been plagued by injuries this season. There’s optimism that Martin can stick around for the rest of the season with the Knicks, who have been eyeing him since early in the season
Martin averaged 5.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 22.3 minutes in 42 games last season with the Los Angeles Clippers. Martin and Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro often didn’t see eye-to-eye last season and the franchise didn’t try to re-sign him. Martin previously told Yahoo! Sports he was open to signing a contract with any NBA team for any team role.
