Could Kenyon Martin be headed to the Knicks or Celtics? (Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)
Los Angeles Clippers free agent forward Kenyon Martin is once again being linked to the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics, but according to MSG's Alan Hahn, the snag in Martin joining any team is that the 34-year-old refuses to sign for the veterans minimum:
Kenyon Martin is the player so many continue to link to the Knicks, but K-Mart has remained steadfast in not wanting to accept a veteran’s minimum.
Chris Andersen, Martin's teammate with the Denver Nuggets, is reportedly also linked to the Knicks, with Hahn saying the "Birdman" has been "pushing the idea, [b]ut the sentiment isn't mutual." Ditto for Tracy McGrady, who tried out with the Knicks but according to Hahn, "there doesn't appear to be great interest there."
Because of their salary cap, the Knicks would only be able to afford a player at the veterans minimum with their current roster.
