Report: Kevin Martin will not re-sign in Houston. Think trade.

21 Comments

In all the buzz about the Rockets trading Chase Budinger to get the No. 18 pick — a move clearly a precursor to other moves — there was a lot of talk about who might get moved with a pick so Houston can move up.

It may not be now, but look for Kevin Martin to get moved. Maybe not until next trade deadline, but look at this note from Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated.

Rockets shooting guard Kevin Martin is also a possibility to be dealt. He has just one year left on his contract (worth $12.9 million) and is not looking to re-sign in Houston, according to sources close to him.

He certainly can shoot the rock — he averaged 17.1 points per game and shot 34.7 percent from three last season, and that was off from previous seasons when he shot much better — and while a team may not want to keep him at that price he has real value.

Just a name to watch as we know the Rockets are looking to make moves and shake things up.
