Knicks reportedly consider signing Kenyon Martin

The New York Knicks may turn to the veteran for some much-needed help in the frontcourt.

As the New York Knicks deal with a depleted frontcourt, the team is reportedly looking into the possibility of signing veteran free agent Kenyon Martin.

Rasheed Wallace's foot injury has lingered, according to sources, and the Knicks have inquired about the availability of the 35-year-old. Martin is said to be open to accepting something as small as a 10-day contract in order to showcase his abilities at his advanced age.

Martin last played for the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2011-12 season in the most diminished role he has seen in his 12 NBA seasons. Four players on New York's roster are former teammates of Martin's -- Carmelo Anthony, J.R. Smith, Marcus Camby and Jason Kidd.

The Knicks are coming off a 102-96 home loss to the Boston Celtics Monday night. In that game, it was clear the Knicks were out-muscled inside, as the Celtics scored 40 points in the paint. With no timetable set for Wallace's return, the Knicks are feeling the pressure to make a move in the coming days.
