The Milwaukee Bucks have reportedly signed veteran power forward Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract, according to league sources.
Sources told ESPN that the Bucks have committed to add Martin to their roster this week, with reports suggesting that he may even be added as early as Thursday after they opened up a spot by releasing a player.
Should the move be confirmed, Martin will reunite with former teammate and now Bucks coach Jason Kidd after their successful spell together in New Jersey where they led the Nets to consecutive trips to the NBA Finals in 2002 and 2003.
Players can sign two 10-day contracts before a team must commit to either sign them for the rest of the season or let them go, and so Martin will be hoping to impress in order to bring his experience and talent to a young yet talented roster.
The 37-year-old signed two 10-day deals with the New York Knicks late in the 2012/13 season and played well enough to earn himself a deal for the rest of that season.
However, he didn’t return last year but the former No.1 overall pick in the 2000 NBA Draft has averaged 12.5 points and 6.9 rebounds in 14 seasons in the league.
The Bucks are looking to address their weakness in the front court as starting center Larry Sanders continues to go through personal issues which have kept him sidelined recently.
While he dismissed reports that he was considering retirement, Kidd has previously conceded that he would love to have him back on the court on a consistent basis as he makes them a better team.
