Kenyon Martin is reportedly back in the NBA, having agreed to a 10-day deal with the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Bucks are expected to make the signing official this week.
The move is something of an insurance policy, given the ongoing and mysterious absence by center Larry Sanders.
The Milwaukee Bucks are signing former All-Star power forward Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract, according to league sources.
The move will reunite Martin with Bucks first-year coach Jason Kidd after they teamed up together in New Jersey — with both on the floor — to lead the Nets to consecutive trips to the NBA Finals in 2002 and 2003.
The former No. 1 overall pick in the 2000 NBA draft has averaged 12.5 points and 6.9 rebounds in 14 seasons. He auditioned for the Bucks last week and is expected to help them try to fill the frontcourt void left by the ongoing absence of center Larry Sanders, who has returned to the team this week but says he is working on his “psyche and my physical health” after unspecified personal issues recently.
