Kenyon Martin never gave up on himself. He believed he could help an NBA team still, kept training, kept searching, and now he has a contract. Albeit a 10-day contract, but it's a contract nonetheless. The New York Knicks signed the veteran forward yesterday.
Ian Begley of ESPN New York says the Knicks signed Martin in an attempt to help shore up their interior defense. Martin will have to prove he is in shape and able to contribute at a high level though.
Martin may be most famous for his injury suffered just prior to the Cincinnati Bearcats entering what was expected to be a magical NCAA tournament run. Martin entered the NBA draft after the injury and had a decent career. However, he has struggled to find playing time anywhere of late.
Martin played 42 games with the Los Angeles Clippers last season. He averaged just 5.2 points and 4.3 rebounds. However, the 35-year old has been much better than that over his career. He has averaged 13.0 points and 7.1 rebounds per game in his career.
