Lob City has landed some much-needed depth to their roster. Mike James of the LA Times is reporting that Kenyon Martin and the Clippers have agreed to a contract that will bring the power forward to Los Angeles. Martin will sign a mini-mid-level deal that will be finalized pending a physical. According to Chris Broussard, the deal is worth $2.5 million.
The 34-year-old Martin has been in China with the Xinjiang Tigers waiting for the season to end so he could return to the NBA. FIBA approved his return yesterday. Martin will help give Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan a little extra rest each night as both big men have been playing more than 30 minutes a night. Reggie Evans has really been the only other big man getting steady playing time for the Clippers during their 13-7 start.
