Rumor: Carmelo wants Knicks to sign Kenyon Martin?
The Knicks have one roster spot still open entering tomorrow’s season opener, and Carmelo Anthony hopes it eventually goes to his former Nuggets teammate Kenyon Martin, according to an NBA source.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Kenyon Martin will help, but only if the New York Knicks are serious about becoming more of a defensive team.
Martin, who is currently trying to untangle himself from a complicated contract with a Chinese club, is a blue-collar four-man.
His rebounding, defense, and athleticism would help the Knicks transition from Seven Seconds Or Less to a more traditional get-stops squad.
Of course, with a frontline of Anthony, Tyson Chandler, and Amar’e Stoudemire, Martin would get limited minutes off the bench. And there’s no telling if Martin, a confident and brash individual, would accept that.
