NBA free agency: Kenyon Martin agrees to sign with Knicks
Though the interest from New York reaches back a while, Martin could have been hoping for a contract above the league minimum.
Martin signed two 10-day contracts with New York last season as the team became desperate for bodies in the frontcourt. Rasheed Wallace, Kurt Thomas, Marcus Camby and starting center Tyson Chandler all fought through injuries or ended the season in street clothes, and Martin quickly became the undersize rim-protecting presence. He averaged 7.2 points and 5.3 rebounds in 18 regular season games.
The 35-year-old played 12 postseason games and continued to give the Knicks 20 minutes per night.
