Kenyon Martin joins Knicks
By Ian Begley
The New York Knicks have agreed in principle with free-agent big man Kenyon Martin on a 10-day contract, general manager Glen Grunwald announced Thursday.
Martin, 35, averaged 5.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and one block in 22.4 minutes over 42 games with the Los Angeles Clippers last season. If he's in shape, Martin could help the Knicks' interior defense and boost their rebounding.
New York, which is second in the Eastern Conference at 32-19, cleared a roster spot it will use for Martin earlier Thursday when it traded Ronnie Brewer to Oklahoma City for a second-round pick.
