Kenyon Martin has signed a contract to finish the 2014-15 season with the Milwaukee Bucks.
With his second 10-day contract set to expire, this move will keep Martin from hitting the free agent market. While the 37-year-old brings a veteran presence to the Bucks, he's only averaging 1.3 points and 1.1 rebounds on the season and can safely be left on the wire. Jan 29 - 11:22 AM

Date:

The Bucks intend to sign forward Kenyon Martin to a rest-of-season deal in the coming days.

Martin's 10-day contract is about to expire, but the Bucks have an obvious need for frontcourt depth due to the prolonged absence of Larry Sanders. However, Martin's role has been very limited so there is no reason to consider adding him in almost any league. We will provide further details as needed.

Kenyon Martin and the Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to a rest-of-season deal, according to Shams Charania of RealGM.

Martin signed his second 10-day deal on Monday, so this news keeps the Bucks from having to make a decision on Martin once those ten days expire. The 37-year-old has averaged just 1.5 points and 1.0 rebounds in four games with the Bucks this season, so he can safely be ignored for fantasy purposes.

Bucks sign F Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract.

This is Milwaukee's second 10-day deal for Martin, so after it expires, the team will either have to sign him for the season or simply let him walk.

Jason Kidd said that he anticipates Kenyon Martin landing another 10-day contract with the Bucks.

Sunday marks the final day of Martin's initial 10-day contract, so the Bucks will be able to offer him one more 10-day contract before having to commit to him for the rest of the season. Through three appearances with the Bucks Martin has put up a total of six points, one assist, and three rebounds over 15 minutes of action. He's not an option in any league.

Kenyon Martin (chest) will be available to play vs. the Knicks in London on Thursday.

"I've been getting a little contact today," Martin said. "I took yesterday off, no contact. It's better but it's still a little tender, of course." He suffered the injury on Saturday but the good news is that it won't be serious enough to keep him on the sidelines. The Bucks reportedly would like to keep Martin for the rest of the season after his current 10-day contract expires, but his limited role off the bench will keep him off the radar in most leagues.

The Milwaukee Bucks reportedly want to keep Kenyon Martin (chest) for the rest of the season.

The 37-year-old still has something to offer and the Bucks could definitely use another big with the uncertainty looming over Larry Sanders. However, the Bucks have the ability to offer him one more 10-day contract after his current one expires before they have to make a decision on his future with the team. In other news, there is still no update on Martin's chest injury that forced him out of Saturday's game but we will continue to pass along updates on his status.
Jan 11 - 10:26 AM

Kenyon Martin (chest) will not return to Saturday's game against the Bulls.

He collided with Jimmy Butler in the first half and was unable to stay in the game. Martin just recently signed a 10-day contract to serve as emergency depth for the Bucks so this isn't going to help his chances of sticking around. We will pass along further updates as needed.
Jan 10 - 9:32 PM

Kenyon Martin played eight minutes in his season debut on Friday with six points, two rebounds and one block.

He threw down an alley-oop tonight at age 37, which is impressive enough by itself. Martin is still not going to get a ton of run considering how old he is and perhaps he's just a stop-gap guy on a 10-day deal. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 10 - 2:53 AM

Kenyon Martin will be active for Friday's game against the Timberwolves.

The Bucks currently only have three other healthy big men on the roster, so it's possible Martin could eventually eclipse Johnny O'Bryant in the rotation and put up some short-term value. However, he hasn't played a single minute of basketball this season, so some rust should be expected, and he can be viewed with a wait-and-see approach in deep leagues. He's unlikely to muster enough value for standard league consideration.
Jan 9 - 12:52 PM

The Bucks will reportedly sign PF Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract this week.

Martin has worked out for multiple teams in free agency and finally found a taker, though he's a very dubious source of fantasy value at age 37. The Bucks are starting Johnny O'Bryant at PF and there's no clear return date for Ersan Ilyasova (concussion), which gives Martin the prospect of short-term playing time, but he's only worth watching in deep leagues.
Jan 8 - 9:08 AM

Kenyon Martin worked out for the Bucks on Tuesday in Cleveland, but no deal is imminent at the moment.

"We'll see. Someone is going to pick him up at some point," coach Jason Kidd said. "But I thought what we saw yesterday was all good stuff." The 37-year-old may still have some juice left in the tank, but he likely won't be in the conversation in standard leagues no matter where he ends up. We will pass along further updates as needed.

Kenyon Martin is headed to Cleveland to meet with Bucks head coach Jason Kidd on Tuesday, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports.

Martin has already met with the Cavs and Grizzlies this season about a potential return and will now meet with his former teammate as the Bucks are in need of frontcourt help. While the 37-year-old would provide the Bucks with some much-needed depth, fantasy owners can feel free to ignore this situation.
Tue, Dec 30, 2014 10:04:00 AM

Kenyon Martin said he is "definitely interested" in joining the Cavs.

"I believe I can immediately help in that system," Martin said. "I'm healthy and ready to play now." There have been some rumors before and now it's Cleveland's turn with Anderson Varejao (Achilles) out for the season. There is no reason to add Martin in any league.
Wed, Dec 24, 2014 06:21:00 PM

Kenyon Martin said that his ankle injuries have healed and that he is in shape.

Martin went through a workout with the Grizzlies back in November, but didn't show the team enough to warrant a contract. Despite the fact that Martin says he is healthy, fantasy owners don't need to keep him on a watch list as it would be a surprise if the 36-year-old hooks on with an NBA team.
