In 10 days, the Knicks are going to have to make a decision on Kenyon Martin — keep him or cut him.
But they have another 10 days after offering him his second 10-day contract on Tuesday, reports Frank Isola of Newsday, via twitter. This had been expected.
Martin has gotten on the court for all of five minutes in one game for the Knicks since joining them. But that is the way with guys signed at this point in the season as free agents — they rarely make any kind of serious impact. The Knicks want a veteran guy that practices hard, can fill a role for a few minutes when called on and isn’t some kind of distraction.
We’ll find out in 10 days if Martin lived up to that — after two 10-day contracts teams must sign a player for the rest of the season or cut him free.
