As reported by Ian Begley of ESPN New York, Kenyon Martin has reached an agreement to return to the New York Knicks, his agent Andy Miller said Wednesday.
Details of Martin’s new contract with the Knicks were not made immediately clear, although all indications point toward this being a one year veteran’s minimum deal for K-Mart.
In 18 regular season games for the Knicks last season Martin averaged 7.2 points and 5.3 rebounds, but more importantly added energy and toughness off the Knicks bench. A role the Knicks will be expecting Martin to play again this season.
With Martin now officially in the fold the Knicks bolstered what was already one of the league’s deepest benches.
