Many NBA observers both inside and outside of Houston expect shooting guard Kevin Martin to be traded before the Rockets take the court next season. He's a valuable asset with an expiring contract who can definitely light up the score board.
On the other hand, Martin has suffered frequent injuries during his time in Houston and was out-played by Courtney Lee in many aspects of the game -- most notably defense.
SB Nation's Rockets site, The Dream Shake, digs into the Kevin Martin dilemma.
What Can Kevin Martin Do For The Rockets? - The Dream Shake
Would I trade him if it got the Rockets needed to make space for an elite free agent? If a team offered a lottery pick for him? Without a doubt, but I don't anticipate a deal like that to be on the table for the Rockets. While he's still a Rocket, let's not forget that he's a pretty damn good player as well.
