Kenyon Martin Reportedly Considering Lakers, Nets

Free agent power forward Kenyon Martin, who now has 12 years of NBA experience under his belt, is considering signing with either the Los Angeles Lakers or Brooklyn Nets. The 34 year-old Martin averaged 5 points and 4.3 rebounds per game for the Los Angeles Clippers last season. SI.com has the details: “The veteran was a key reserve for the Clippers, his impact going way beyond his marginal numbers for a team that reached the second round of the playoffs for the second time in franchise history. But sources said the 34-year-old power forward is holding up this later stage of the hiring process for frontcourt free agents, with the Lakers and the Nets among the teams he’s considering and negotiation leverage seemingly gone because so many of his colleagues seem willing to take minimum deals. Golden State was interested in Martin before last week signing power forward Carl Landry to a two-year, $8 million deal that, by comparison, looks lucrative.”

    LA gets all the wild dudes. But he’s welcome.

    Both teams are a good choice, I dont think he can go wrong with any of these teams but Brooklyn would give him more playing time in my opinion…

    It would be good for the Lakers to get some toughness.

    if Kenyon goes to LA, Lakers would be hell of a team … but 5 years ago with Kobe, Nash, Jamison, Gasol, Martin, Artest
