Kenyon Martin is going to be one of the more sought after free agents in the mad scramble that will be post-lockout free agency (did you see how things went in the condensed NFL free agency?).

He looks like a guy clearing the way for one more big kick at the can, and likely moving on from Denver because of it.

For one, he has fired long-time agent Brian Dyke, reports the Denver Post. It was Dyke that helped Martin secure a seven-year, $90 million deal that just ended — whatever Martin gets now, it will be nowhere near those numbers. Not at age 34 and scoring 8.6 points per game as he did last season. Martin is looking for a new agent currently.

Martin also has put his Denver-area home up for sale, reports celebritydetective.com. The house is big and stunning — seven bedroom, nine bathroom, on a two acre lot. The original asking price was $3.2 million. (Martin has another home in the Los Angeles area.)

Who knows what will happen with free agency, but a new agent and selling his Denver home makes it look like he is ready to get out of Denver and go where the market takes him.

    Kind of, sort of a bummer. But really, the only thing he could of stuck around and been was a leader, and bench player. I believe that Faried is going to take the Nuggets PF role to the next level. We also will have the leadership of Afflalo, and even Miller on our end. The Nuggets aren’t going to hurt from this, and besides me and a few people who actually love K-Mart, let me show you all the people in Denver who care…. oh, there isn’t anyone.

    im a Jeff Green fan but Boston would be smart to look into getting this guy.. Miami maybe?

      I’m sure he wants to win a ring, but he’s gonna want more money than Miami can give him, imo.

        Personally I think K-Mart will take the pay cut. I think hes old enough that he gets it.
