(Big C) The Knicks have one available spot to pick up another player now that their roster is at 14. The player for that spot just might be the Nuggets’ Kenyon Martin. Knicks fans might remember Kenyon Martin for his tough play against the Knicks in the playoffs of 2004. Since that time Martin has been traded to the Nuggets and was just released from his Chinese team. Kenyon Martin is now a free agent and can be signed by any team. According to the New York Post Martin would love be reunited with his former teammate and friend Carmelo Anthony.
The main obstacle for the Knicks to get Martin is, even though the Chinese team has waived Kenyon Martin, he will not be allowed to play with any NBA team until the season ends for his Chinese team cut/uncut. Therefore, the Knicks would have to wait until March to sign Martin. By that time the Knicks would have only a month left before they enter the playoffs. That would also be a long time for the Knicks not to sign any other player that could help them as they try to make a playoff push.
So if the Knicks want Kenyon Martin they will have to wait until March 30. And we all know that is a long time to wait in a season that only has 66 games. The next concern is what type of condition will Kenyon Martin be in after being out of basketball all those months?
