Knicks to ink Kenyon Martin for rest of season Friday

Thursday night Kenyon Martin was a starter for the Knicks, playing better than 30 minutes and scoring 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting.

Not bad for a guy on a 10-day tryout contract.

That ends Friday — Martin’s second 10-day contract is up and the Knicks will make it official and sign him for the rest of the season, according to multiple reports out of New York. And common sense.

The Knicks Thursday were without Tyson Chandler, Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony, all due to a variety of knee problems. New York is thin along the front line and Martin has stepped up to play solidly for them (he is shooting 53.6 percent).

This is a no-brainer. We’re all just waiting for it to become official.

    Smart move, and the timing to bring him over in the first place couldn’t have been better.
