They may not put up 30pt quarters, but with all that length I doubt even the Heat or Thunder can score effectively.

Genius.

Heck not even Delonte, but a more serviceable 3rd string PG.


I've been saying the same thing - that we need a backup PG more than anything, but Duhon showed me something in the preseason, and showed me some more tonight. Duhon is playing pretty well. Not sure why he is in the Brown doghouse.

I think Brown is just obsessed with his version of testing lineups: sitting the effective players to try to play the ineffective ones.

Duhon looked alright, but remember he was playing against the bad players of a really bad team so that changes things. He played a few minutes the other night against the Clippers I think and he looked much less effective. Still, if he can duplicate tonight's effort and efficiency running the offense, he should easily be playing those backup minutes over the largely ineffective Morris.

there is a reason no NBA team has touched him yet with a 10 foot pole.

I wouldn't mind having him on the team, he can take the place of Morris that way Brown has to play Duhon as the backup.

I disagree, at this stage of their careers I think Jordan Hill is a far better rebounder.

K-Mart MIGHT be a better defender. For me, we either add K-Mart or West. I forgot our roster situation but we shouldn't add two crazies at the same time.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

Well I can tell Kenyon why he's not on this team.

Jordan Hill.

As to why other teams aren't touching him? Hard to say.

^A new article came out yesterday reporting on Kenyon's despair after finding out that no NBA team wants to sign him.

Thanks. Moving to NBA since the new article was not Lakers related and there is no indication we are interested in him.

I was gonna ask if this even belonged in NBA discussion, as he's no longer employed in the NBA, but I don't think we have an "unemployed" discussion.

Knicks Interested In Kenyon Martin Again

Knicks Interested In Kenyon Martin Again

Image

By Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc J. Spears | Yahoo! Sports

As Rasheed Wallace's foot injury lingers, the New York Knicks are showing a renewed interest in free-agent forward Kenyon Martin, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

The Knicks have done some additional fact-finding on Martin in recent days, sources said.

Martin has been open-minded about the possibility of accepting a 10-day contract to get the opportunity to prove his value to the Knicks, sources said.

Wallace has missed 12 straight games with what the Knicks call a "stress reaction" in his left foot. The uncertainty surrounding Wallace's return has made the Knicks circle back on the possibility of signing Martin, sources said.

Wallace's status is the "critical piece" to the Knicks signing Martin, one league official said.

Martin, 35, played the most reduced role of his career with the Los Angeles Clippers in his 12th season in 2011-12. The Knicks' roster includes four former teammates of Martin that he's has good relationships with: Carmelo Anthony, J.R. Smith, Marcus Camby and Jason Kidd.
