Free agent Kenyon Martin is having a really hard time finding a job in the NBA. The former star who came off the bench for the Los Angeles Clippers, averaged 5.2 points and 4.3 rebounds playing just under 23 minutes in 42 games.
According to Yahoo Sports, “the Clippers didn't attempt to re-sign Martin in the offseason.”
Other teams, such as the Dallas Mavericks and Brooklyn Nets expressed some interest in Martin, but have yet to make any offers.
Martin is a very emotional player who expresses how he feels both on and off the court. He recently had in interview with Yahoo Sports, stating that he had expectations from his coaches and teammates in terms of being prepared for practice and games.
According to Sporting News, Martin is resigned to play for the league minimum and would not demand big minutes.
Despite his willingness to blend in, no team has stepped forward with an offer nearly a week into the regular season. One has to wonder why a team such as the Houston Rockets, who is in need of a skillful forward or center, does not take advantage and sign Martin for a minimum contract.
