Kenyon Martin didn’t log a ton of minutes last season for the Clips, but he did enough in my opinion to make some fans believe he has something left in those old legs. According to Spin.ph Martin doesn’t want to throw in the towel for his pro basktball career just yet. He’s been weighing his options internationally according to the following report from a agent for the pro league in the Philippines (PBA) who claims to be close to convincing Martin to suit up in the Philippines.
Player agent Sheryl Reyes said she has started negotiations with the camp of the high-flying Martin, a 12-year NBA veteran who is without a team after a stint with the Los Angeles Clippers last season where he averaged 5.2 points and 4.3 rebounds in 42 games.
“I am moving heaven and earth to bring him here. Kenyon is now weighing his options,” said Reyes.
The 6-9 forward would be a big boost for any team in the tournament that will feature imports of unlimited height, but Reyes declined to reveal which PBA ballclub she is representing in the negotiations.
“The deal is a go if Martin decides on it, his final decision will matter in the end,” she said.
Reyes has previously brought in imports like Sammy Monroe ( Barako Bull), Rodney White (Barako Bull), Donnel Harvey (Talk N’ Text), Chris Alexander (Ginebra), Leroy Hickerson (Air 21), Mario West (Meralco) and Olympian Champ Oguchi (Meralco).
She has also previously made attempts to bring in NBA stars Allen Iverson and Tracy McGrady. Reyes said she has ties with the US agency that eventually brought McGrady to China’s pro league.
