Quantcast

Sam Amick, SI.com
(On Kenyon Martin) "Martin, remains unemployed despite his reputation as a tenacious defender and enforcer. He's the sort of veteran that could come in handy for any contender, but here's the crucial rub: It appears that most, if not all, of the interested teams want him to sign a veteran's minimum deal.
The Lakers and Celtics have shown interest previously, but the question now is whether the 34-year-old Martin will hold out until midseason or perhaps even retire if he doesn't get a deal and a situation to his liking."

(On Terrence Williams) "Former lottery pick Terrence Williams is still considering his options as well, and a source with knowledge of his situation says the 25-year-old small forward is working out for the Pistons in Detroit this week. Dallas and Boston are believed to be interested as well."

Amick also says that Matt Barnes is most likely headed across town to the Lakers. Martin/Williams would be an either/or thing. I've never really been a fan of Martin. He's tough, but also seems to be an asshole. Obviously at 34 he's also lost some of the athleticism that made him a quality player. I feel like he would duplicate Bass and Sullinger and would prefer just giving the final roster spot to a guy like Christmas over Martin.

Williams is another guy who has talent, but has bounced around due to knuckleheaditis. On a team with Pierce, Green, and Lee already, not sure what his role would be, but to whine about playing time off the bench. Danny did a good job of cleaning up the roster last year to rid it of knuckleheads and was rewarded with a deep playoff run. I'd stay the course this season and pass on these guys.
