Kenyon Martin has remained healthy and performed well enough to earn himself another ten days on the New York Knicks roster. The veteran forward has played out his original ten-day contract with the Knicks, but the team is reportedly going to give him another one.
According to Ian Begley of ESPN New York, the team actually hopes that Martin sticks with the club for the rest of the season. However, the Knicks aren't ready to sign him for the remainder of the season because of injury concerns.
Martin didn't play at all this season until the Knicks signed him to the ten-day contract. And even still, he got limited playing time in the first ten-day deal. So far with the Knicks, Martin has played in one game for five minutes. He didn't score any points or pull down any rebounds. But he also didn't turn the ball over.
Martin was once a force in the NBA. He was never really the star people thought he might be, but he was a good player. In his career, he has averaged 13.0 points per game and 7.0 rebounds per game. He was thought to be an easy number one overall pick out of college in 2000, but then he broke his leg. He was still drafted in the first round.
