New Trade Rumors Circulating Around K-Mart


FortCollins-CO) Let the bidding begin for Kenyon Martin. Do I hear any bidders? Ah ha, New York, and what are you willing to give us for Mr. Martin? Well if there is any legitimacy to a rumor circulating on http://www.nuggetshoops.com/, the Knicks could be interested, again, in making a deal for two of their expiring contracts, (Potentially Jalen Rose and Maurice Taylor or possibly Channing Frye), for the remaining four years and 54 million dollars left on Kenyon Martin’s contract. Larry Brown is also rumored to be pressuring Isiah Thomas to land aging defensive giant Alonzo Mourning.

I think that the Nuggets need to be patient when dealing Kenyon Martin this off-season. Jumping the gun and taking the first trade that gets presented would be foolish. The Nuggets need to figure out what they are going to do with Nene and critically evaluate their needs for a shooting guard. In regards to the two expiring contracts and pair of players that would be potentially traded to New York for Kenyon Martin, I only like the deal with Frye. Jalen Rose is far over the hill and Maurice Taylor would have a hard time finding minutes with Reggie Evans and Nene next year. The most appetizing morsel of either of these potential deals would be Frye. He is definitely blossoming into a big time center and reminds me of a very young Marcus Camby. Gotta think about the future…

The Knicks don't have Hardaway anymore, he was traded for Steve Francis.

I don't know if Nene's gonna ever pan out but no matter what, they have to get a pure shooter who can be a role-player for them maybe coming off the bench.

In light of your previous comments about Martin ("Get real! You're not worth even half your enormous salary and you're a distraction for this team. Plus the Nuggets do not need you to win. One more thing... As far as I am concerned, you've been a cancer on this team since you got here.") it's not likely the Knicks would part with Channing Frye for him. Getting two expiring contracts for him would help when next year's free agent class becomes available. Rose and Taylor would not even have to play a minute and be an improvement if your assesment is correct.

He is not worth $54 million to any team that doesn't have Jason Kidd on it to make him productive, so there will be few bidders (the Lakers might be interested if they get killed on the boards in the playoffs, I don't know too many other teams that can afford him)
