How Can Kenyon Martin Help The Knicks


Just recently, the Knicks signed veteran forward Kenyon Martin in a 10-day contract. They might consider signing him for the rest of the season as well. With Wallace and Camby, out with injuries, Martin is expected to play enough minutes to help Tyson Chandler in their frontline. Here are some facets where he can help right away:

1. Defense and Rebounding

For his career, Kenyon Martin averaged 7.1 rebounds/game. Since the Knicks are ranked 29th in that department this season, his numbers can definitely boost their output. Note that Tyson Chandler averages 11.1 this season and their second leading rebounder is Carmelo Anthony with 6.5. In addition to his ability to grab boards, he is a versatile defender since he can guard at least two positions with his size.

2. Veteran Leadership and Familiarity with Players

Being in the NBA for 12 seasons, Martin has been through it all. He has been in the Finals twice as a Net and was also part of the Nuggets' deep playoff run in 2009. Also he has played with Jason Kidd (Nets), J.R. Smith, Carmelo Anthony, and Marcus Camby (Nuggets), meaning, fitting in would not be much of a problem for him coming in.
