Martin has played for three teams... the kings from 2004-2010... and then the rockets. he doesnt get bumped around every year lol. Also martin isnt a much of a downgrade aside from on a defensive point, on offense martin puts up more ppg and slightly lower in each stat(although his FG% could be higher). Also he had to start on poorer teams. I think theyre both good players but with OKC getting picks and an exciting prospect in Lamb i dont see this as a terrible trade for either parties. Rockets want revenue generated through their organization thats apparent through their recent aquisitions. And OKC didnt want all that payroll for a 6th man who fell asleep during the finals. They have their stars, Ibaka, durant, westbrook. Theyll be fine and still competing for that top spot.
