Kenyon Martin can't join an NBA team until the one he signed with in China, Xinjiang Gyang Hui, is finished for the season. That could happen by Feb. 18, Yahoo! Sports Marc J. Spears reports, and he may make his decision on where he'd like to be in the NBA by this weekend.
Six teams have expressed interest in bringing Martin aboard, Spears reports: the Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs, Atlanta Hawks and New York Knicks.
"He's a veteran guy who knows how to win at a high level and in a playoff environment," one NBA general manager said, according to Spears. "He also plays multiple positions. If you get him to a situation where he can be an Antonio McDyess-type of guy, that's a heck of a guy to add to your roster."
The 34-year-old Martin, averaged 8.6 points and 6.2 rebounds in 48 games with the Denver Nuggets last season. Like every other guy in the NBA, "Martin wants to join a winning team that gives him consistent minutes," Spears notes.
