Power forward Kenyon Martin spent seven seasons with the Denver Nuggets before heading off to China this season to make some bucks while the NBA and its players worked out a new CBA. Now Martin can sign with whatever team will take him in the NBA, and you'd think he'd have some minor interest in rejoining the Nuggets since the team now has the second-best record in the Western Conference (behind only the Oklahoma City Thunder).
But no. The word from the Denver Post is that Martin isn't planning to return to the Mile High City.
Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the 34-year-old Martin, who averaged 8.6 points and 6.2 rebounds per game last season for Denver "has visited with several NBA teams interested in signing him, including the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday." The Los Angeles Clippers and Miami Heat lead the pack for him.
Wojnarowski reports, though, that the Los Angeles Lakers, San Antonio Spurs, New York Knicks and Hawks also have interest in Martin, and his decision is expected to be made this weekend.
