Kenyon Martin has been waiting for his chance. After a respectable season with the Clippers last year — 5.2 points and 4.3 rebounds a game — he wanted some mid-level money and multiple years at age 34.
It didn’t come. Nothing came. After a while not even one-year deals for the veteran minimum were available. The Clippers didn’t want back a guy who, let’s say, has the reputation of a disruption in the locker room.
But now a team is in conversations with Martin and he might go from the sidelines to a contender, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.
This is not done. Once the trade deadline passes some players around the league will get bought out and the Heat are going to wait to see who else may be on the market. Also, the minutes are limited as Chris Andersen was already picked up by Miami and took minutes from Joel Anthony. But the Heat are looking at the playoffs and thinking they want some size on the bench.
