Xinjiang Flying Tigers Target Kenyon Martin

Kenyon Martin is being pursued by the Xinjiang Flying Tigers, who are reportedly willing to give him the largest contract in the Chinese Basketball Association’s history, at more than $3 million. Per ESPN: “The Denver Post reported Friday that Nuggets free-agent forward Kenyon Martin, like Nuggets swingmen Wilson Chandler and J.R. Smith, is talking seriously with teams in China in case the apparent progress that suddenly materialized in labor talks this week turns out to be a mirage. Sources told ESPN.com on Friday night that the team Martin has engaged with most seriously is Xinjiang Guanghui … or the Flying Tigers of Xinjiang. Xinjiang is also among the teams in China that have entered into serious talks with Philadelphia 76ers restricted free agent Thaddeus Young.”

    So…China is working on taking all of the Nuggets? If the players don’t get opt-outs, the Nuggets might be screwed if there’s a shortened season and they need to get ready fast.

    Still first? After 7&1/2 hours? Dizzle. Must be a slow day. Or nobody cares about K-Mart any more.
