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.

Why would we want to sign him? The dude is like 50. We want to get younger not older.

Is that a trick question?

Jordan Hill is out for the remainder of the season. We desperately need some frontcourt depth.

There's a reason no one wants him... If he is any good, he would be playing by now...

That doesn't mean we go after someone like Martin who can do more damage than good to our team. There is a reason nobody wants to sign him. First of all his offense is at best crap. second of all I really doubt he can help this team defensively. He has probably lost more than a step or two defensively and he will just be a liability out there on the court. Kind of like Rasheed Wallace with the Knicks. At least Rasheed can make the occasional three, what does this guy have?

He would be a 3rd string PF. Basically taking the role Clark had before Hill got hurt. It gives us extra insurance.

Don't really know how or why is this even a debate. Hill is out for the season. We need some depth in the front court. K-Mart should still be able to come in and provide 15-20 solid minutes.

KMart would be a good fit with Hill out.
