Report: Kenyon Martin on Celtics’ Radar, But Forward Wants More Than Veteran’s Minimum

Report: Kenyon Martin on Celtics' Radar, But Forward Wants More Than Veteran's MinimumThere's probably a lot of Celtics fans who had nightmares about Kenyon Martin during his days with the Nets. Those same C's fans might now have dreams about the veteran joining Boston for a potential title run.

The Celtics are among the teams to have Martin "on their radar," MSG's Alan Hahn reports on Sulia. The rival Knicks are also reportedly interested in the 34-year-old.

The problem that the Celtics — and other teams — are running into, however, is meeting K-Mart's financial desires. Martin has reportedly remained steadfast on not accepting the veteran's minimum, which decreases Boston's chances of signing the former All-Star.

CSNNE.com's A. Sherrod Blakely described the Celtics' chances of signing Martin as "slim to none," and SI.com's Sam Amick reported last week that while the Celtics and Lakers have shown interest in the power forward, there's questions about whether Martin will opt to sit out or retire if he doesn't get the deal he wants.

Martin, a well-respected defender, averaged 5.2 points and 4.3 rebounds in 22.4 minutes per game over 42 contests with the Clippers last season.
