Kenyon Martin Reportedly Considering Lakers, Nets

by August 08, 2012

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. 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.”
