The Los Angeles Clippers on Friday significantly bolstered their frontcourt by signing free agent power forward Kenyon Martin. Martin was playing with the Xinjiang Guanghui Flying Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association this summer after signing with them during the lockout.
Martin is expected to join the Clippers before their game Monday night in Orlando, and will wear uniform number two with his new team.
"Kenyon is the ultimate competitor and a key acquisition," said Clippers Vice President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey. "We expect that he will provide additional experience, passion and professionalism, as well as some important depth to our front court."
Martin, 34, is an 11-year veteran who spent the last seven years of his career with the Denver Nuggets. In 654 career games, the power forward has averaged 13.5 points and 7.2 rebounds in his career. Martin was an All-Star in the 2003-2004 season while with the New Jersey Nets.
