Kenyon Martin Returning To NBA, San Antonio Spurs Interested In His Talents

Power forward Kenyon Martin is returning to the NBA and the San Antonio Spurs are on the small list of teams in line to land him. League sources told Yahoo! Sports that Martin is being courted by the Spurs along with the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, Atlanta Hawks and New York Knicks.

Martin is an unrestricted free agent and now has clearance to re-join the NBA after signing in China this season along with fellow former Denver Nuggets players J.R. Smith and Wilson Chandler and Aaron Brooks of the Phoenix Suns. Those guys are still playing in China, however, whereas Martin left the country and received a FIBA ruling allowing him back in the NBA.

According to a report from Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski, Martin has already met with the Clippers and is meeting with the Hawks on Thursday. The timeline for a decision is expected to be fast with Martin agreeing to terms this weekend and taking a physical on Monday.

Martin is 34-years-old and averaged 8.6 points and 6.2 rebounds with the Nuggets lat season. His addition to the Spurs would add veteran front court depth from a proven defender.
