  1. Report: Knicks sign Kenyon Martin to 10-day contract

    Feb 21, 2013, 5:54 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    Miami was interested, but the New York Knicks beat them to the man. The New York Knicks have signed Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract, tweeted first by Marc Spears at Yahoo Sports and now confirmed by other sources. He steps into the roster spot created by the trade of Ronnie Brewer. The deal likely…

  2. Report: The Miami Heat are talking to Kenyon Martin

    Feb 21, 2013, 2:38 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    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.…

  3. Report: Lakers not looking to acquire big man at deadline

    Feb 12, 2013, 10:11 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Gasol sits on the floor with a member of the Lakers medical staff after suffering an injury to his right leg in the fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Brooklyn

    Pau Gasol is out until likely the final weeks of the season with a torn plantar fascia of his right foot. They already have lost reserve big man Jordan Hill for the season to hip surgery. Dwight Howard is playing but having to battle through shoulder and back issues. Oh, and Robert Sacre is on…

  4. Report: Knicks worried Rasheed Wallace could be done for season

    Jan 16, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Rasheed Wallace reacts to a referee's call against the Chicago Bulls during the first half of their NBA game in Chicago

    Rasheed Wallace has been out a month now with what the team first called a “sore left foot” then later changed that to a “stress reaction” in his left foot. You’ve got to love the Knicks, they can’t even admit it’s a stress fracture when it’s a stress fracture because… who knows why? They’re the…

  5. Report: Knicks considering signing Kenyon Martin

    Jan 8, 2013, 6:41 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    Rasheed Wallace — at age 38 and having taken a season off from the NBA — really brought the Knicks something off the bench. Yes, there was 7.2 points a game and the threat of a big who can shoot to space the floor. But more importantly, he brought some size on defense in the…

  6. No, the Lakers are not adding Derek Fisher. Or anyone else.

    Dec 26, 2012, 3:02 PM EDT

    fisher-kaman-flagrant-2

    Steve Nash is back for the Lakers and that means less Chris Duhon and Darius Morris. Which is good thing for the Lakers offense. But plenty of Lakers fans saw Derek Fisher ask out of the Dallas Mavericks and say, “we should totally pick him up, he could help us.” Which is absolutely not true,…

  7. Celtics not interested in Kenyon Martin, Dampier maybe

    Dec 5, 2012, 10:20 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    The Celtics are looking for depth along the front line. Kenyon Martin is the best free agent big man out there on the market. But with Martin can come an attitude — he had issue with Vinny Del Negro last season, he’s outspoken and has the reputation of rubbing both management and some players the…

  8. Celtics ‘wary’ of bringing in Kenyon Martin to fill team’s roster spot

    Dec 2, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    The Celtics need help on the boards, and could use an experienced big man to fill the team’s open roster spot. Someone like Kenyon Martin, maybe, who is out there and waiting to be picked up by any team that will have him. Boston has always been a team sensitive to the personalities it brings…

  9. Doc Rivers says Darko “most likely” gone from Celtics

    Nov 20, 2012, 4:37 PM EDT

    Darko Milicic

    With a sick mother back home and no playing time in Boston, reports surfaced on Monday that Darko Milicic had returned home to be close to his family and was considering staying there and not coming back. Doc Rivers basically confirmed that on Tuesday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. “Most likely, yes,” was C’s…

  10. Report: Darko Milicic may leave Celtics to return to Europe, sick mother

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:48 PM EDT

    Darko Milicic

    After a preseason when Celtics fans were high on him (this is why we say don’t read much into those games), Darko Milicic has been a non-factor for the Celtics. He played five minutes in the season opener and hasn’t sniffed the court since. Part of it is his mind is elsewhere — with his…

  11. Report: Heat now on top of Kenyon Martin’s list

    Nov 13, 2012, 10:23 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    Kenyon Martins remains a free agent. He had gone from saying he wanted more than the league minimum and was only going to play for a contender to saying he will play for the league minimum and he will play for anyone. But he’d still like to be in Miami, according to Ira Winderman of…

  12. Kenyon Martin says he will play for anyone. At league minimum.

    Nov 5, 2012, 10:01 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    Kenyon Martin doesn’t have an NBA team. Which seems a little strange — at age 34 last season he struggled a little with knee issues and that led to shooting struggles (he shot 44.8 percent last season, down from 51 percent the season before) and rebounding issues. His PER fell to 9.8. But his knee…

  13. Report: Antonio McDyess thinking about return to NBA

    Nov 2, 2012, 9:44 AM EDT

    McDYESS_ANTONIO

    Antonio McDyess, last seen coming off the Spurs bench and playing respectably if not well, is thinking about returning to the NBA after a year off. With teams always looking for help along the front line, and with his reputation as being good in the locker room, the 6’9” McDyess might get some attention. Adrian…

  14. Kenyon Martin wants back in NBA — for mini mid-level

    Oct 31, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    Under the new CBA, a lot of quality veterans who were used to getting a few million to play have had to sign for less than they thought they were worth, taking veteran minimum deals. Kenyon Martin wouldn’t play that game, he wanted to get paid. Now Martin isn’t playing any game — no team…

  15. NBA season preview: L.A. Clippers

    Oct 16, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    Last Season: Perhaps it was the start of a cultural change in Clipperland, or maybe it was simply the beginning of a very short-term spike of relative success. Either way, your 2011-12 Clippers were competitive, fun to watch, and a team that made its way into the playoffs — three qualities that have been completely…

  16. Report: Tracy McGrady finalizing deal to play in China

    Oct 8, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    Tracy McGrady was looking for another year in the NBA, a 16th NBA season. But not finding a guaranteed deal, he is taking his talents to the port city of Qingdao, China, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. McGrady, 33, will likely complete the deal within the next couple days and leave for China within…

  17. Report: Gilbert Arenas considering playing in China

    Sep 28, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    Gilbert Arenas wants another shot in the NBA. He’s working out at the Lakers facilities. His agent is calling GMs all over the place. Arenas is telling gas station managers his plans and that’s somehow becoming a rumor. The truth — there are no calls for him. Teams are not interested. They weigh the off-court…

  19. Report: Lou Amundson agrees to deal with Timberwolves

    Sep 24, 2012, 4:02 PM EDT

    Louis Amundson

    After looking at a few guys to come in as an off-the-bench big man for Minnesota, they made their choice. And sorry Timberwolves fans, it is not Anthony Tolliver. Minnesota and Lou Amundson reached terms on a one-year deal, tweets Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida. Source tells me Lou Amundson to sign a 1-year…

  20. Report: Knicks, Celtics like Kenyon Martin, but money is issue

    Sep 18, 2012, 9:49 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    The Knicks are still looking to add one more backup power forward to the roster, and a lot of Knicks fans look out at the rather barren landscape of available free agents and see Kenyon Martin as the best option. He probably is. And the Knicks fans are not alone in seeing it. But this…

  21. Where in the world will Josh Howard play next?

    Sep 17, 2012, 9:42 AM EDT

    Jazz forward Howard tries to get position on Spurs forward Leonard during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    Matt Barnes got inked but we still have a long list of veteran players out there waiting to sign a deal — Kenyon Martin, Mickael Pietrus, Louis Amundson, Leandro Barbosa, Anthony Tolliver, Darko Milicic. Josh Howard can be added to that list, also. Once a 19.9 points per game scorer for the Mavericks, last season…

  22. Just how much ink does Chris Andersen have? A lot.

    Sep 14, 2012, 6:25 PM EDT

    chris-andersen tattoos

    Right now, Chris Andersen — the Birdman — is trying to find a team that wants to bring him in. He was amnestied by the Nuggets and has yet to find a new home. Like Kenyon Martin and others, he’s finding a dry market where the only offers are for the veteran minimum, and in…

  23. Kenyon Martin has suitors but still wants more than minimum

    Sep 14, 2012, 8:40 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    The phone of Kenyon Martin’s agent is ringing — teams are interested in him. But the offers are all the same — veteran minimum. And for a veteran who played well at times for the Clippers last season (8.9 points and 6.3 rebounds a game), he doesn’t want to play for the minimum anymore. Marc…

  24. Tracy McGrady worked out for Spurs, Knicks up next

    Sep 13, 2012, 12:47 PM EDT

    Tracy McGrady

    Tracy McGrady is auditioning for jobs. Like a lot of veterans he is finding the financial realities of the new CBA are keeping teams from guaranteeing contracts for veterans, so he is out there working it trying to find a team that will sign him, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Still searching for an…
