Bucks sign Kenyon Martin to second 10-day contract

9 Comments

The Bucks signed Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract, waiving the younger and better Nate Wolters in the process.

So, it probably didn’t matter how Martin played. (For the record: six points on 3-of-5 shooting and three rebounds while Milwaukee was outscored by seven points in 15 minutes during wins over the lowly Knicks and Timberwolves and a loss to the Bulls). The Bucks were probably going to keep Jason Kidd’s old friend, regardless.

Milwaukee made good on that assumption today.

Bucks release:

The Milwaukee Bucks have signed forward/center Kenyon Martin to a second 10-day contract, General Manager John Hammond announced today.

After this deal runs out, the Bucks can sign Martin only if they commit for the rest of this season. They probably will.

At best, the 37-year-old Martin will provide toughness and veteran leadership for an up-and-coming team looking to make noise in a pretty-open Eastern Conference.
