Veteran forward Kenyon Martin played for the New York Knicks last season but was limited to 32 games due to injury. The Knicks parted ways with Martin and he since expressed interest in returning to the game in either a playing or coaching capacity. According to Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Martin will have a chance to work out with the Grizzlies tomorrow:
Told veteran forward Kenyon Martin will work out for Griz tomorrow but nothing imminent. Source says Griz are ‘kicking the tires’.
Not to say the Grizzlies necessarily need Martin, but the veteran could add some extra toughness to support the primary front line of Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. Those aspects of experience and depth might make Martin an early risk-free addition for the Grizzlies, who are off to a 7-1 start to the season.
