Default Heat, Spurs, Clippers, Hawks, Knicks want Kenyon Martin


The Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Clippers, Atlanta Hawks and New York Knicks are pursuing free-agent forward Kenyon Martin, according to league sources.

Martin has spoken with executives from each of the clubs and is hoping to make his decision next week.

The veteran of 11 NBA seasons will be eligible to sign and begin playing with a team as soon as the Xinjiang Guanghui Flying Tigers complete their season in the Chinese Basketball Association.

Martin signed a $2.6 million deal with Xinjiang during the lockout, but left the team in late December in hopes of returning to the NBA.

Would be a vast improvement over Solomon Jones on the Clippers and bring an enforcer type. Martin-Evans off the bench behind Blake-Jordan sounds really nice. No more Jones, no more Cook, less Thompkins

Clippers can offer him $2.5 million, which is apparently more than anyone else can.

I'd say there's a good chance he comes here. And then we sign JR Smith in March or whatever.

LA Nuggets.

If those are the ones wants who are in the hunt and he wants to join a contender...seems an obvious choice.

He wasn't doing that well in the extremely low level of play of the Chinese League. Either he wasn't giving any effort or he's going rack up a lot of DNPs for any decent team.

Aaron Brooks or JR Smith are guys I'd be interested in picking up.

Funny how all of those teams have PFs that play big minutes already. I'm still hoping he'd come to NY. He'd get a lot of minutes because not only will he get Amar'e's back up minutes, but he'll also be on the court with him. Essentially he'll get the Jefferies role but he actually has skill.

Hopefully this is our rotation by the playoffs-

PG: Baron (28)- Shumpert (20)- Douglas/Bibby
SG: Landry (25)- Douglas (15)- Walker/Shumpert (8)
SF: Melo (36)- Walker (7)- Landry (5)- Novak/Balkman
PF: Amar'e (28)- Kenyon (20)- Jefferies/Jorts (hopefully Jorts is healthy)
C: Tyson (32)- Amar'e (8)- Kenyon (8)- Jorts

Good balance of scorers and defenders, still lack shooters though.

From the Knicks or the Clippers?

I think I'd prefer the Clips to go after JR Smith over Martin thinking on it, but still would be a good pickup. Mo Williams - Smith at the backup guards = 40 3 point attempts a night.
