Kevin Martin will have to take paycut to remain with Thunder

Along with C talk, there has been discussion on possible upgrades at the SG. OJ Mayo, Tyreke Evans, and a few prospects in the draft have been mentioned. After stepping into the 6th man role, Kevin Martin has certainly made a case for a starting position and substantial pay increase. Should the Blazers throw their hat into the ring?

By Michael Levkowitz & Thomas Johnson (From Nyfwc.com - full story: Sources Should Say: Carlos Boozer Trades That Make Sense) "Morey has been biding his time looking for a talented (and preferably marketable) big man since Yao Ming’s retirement. Boozer is no Dwight Howard…but he shouldn’t exactly cost "the house." Kevin Martin is certainly still a potent offensive player, but he clashed with coach Kevin McHale, plus he’s in the last year of his contract and he hasn’t exactly expressed interest in taking a discount to stay in Houston. Is Boozer a big enough prize for Morey to justify parting with K-Mart and the still developing Patrick Patterson? Boozer seemed to fit in reasonably well alongside Asik in Chicago, and would certainly fit in real well alongside Lin on the new Billboards around Houston. He’s still a top-10 power forward in the league, and paired with Asik, the Rockets could be assured of holding their own on the boards every night. More importantly, he can score from down low. Beyond Boozer, don’t sleep on the value of the Bulls’ upcoming draft pick. That team could well end up high in the lottery even if they don’t choose to openly tank, and we all know how much Daryl Morey loves his draft picks… Chicago upgrades the shooting guard position significantly (something it seems they’ve been trying to do since they let Ben Gordon leave in free agency), while ridding itself of the under-achieving Boozer contract. Many Chicago fans genuinely believe that their team looked most dangerous when Taj was starting while Boozer was out with an injury; the hope is that Gibson will blossom with increased minutes and freedom. Ideally Patterson, who people smarter than myself seem to believe has a much higher ceiling than Gibson ever did,will push Taj for minutes, and one of the two will stick. Martin can hit open shots in rhythm, and create with some efficiency at the end of the shot clock when necessary. Once Rose returns, the team would instantly return to the title conversation. In the mean time, Martin could well push Chicago damn close to the playoffs, and would certainly help the team continue to put an entertaining team on the floor during Rose’s absence."

Kevin Martin: Stone Cold Gentleman

If the NBA gave a Most Underrated award, the Kings' Martin would have about three by now. Conversely, his teammate Ron Artest would be a perennial powerhouse in the Most Combustible department....

Kevin Martin needs to be in better shape for the uptempo Rockets

"I know I have to get myself in better conditioning," Martin said. "In Sacramento, we stood around. Here we push the ball. As a scorer, you like a team that can push the ball. I need to put a little extra effort into the treadmill." "There's going to be an adjustment."

Is Kevin Martin Trade Bait?

Kevin Martin leads the list of potential trade deadline blockbusters. What do you guys think? With Tyreke Evans in the house, should the Kings liquidate Martin for more young talent?

Some are concerned that Martin’s return might hamper Evan’s scoring or wreck the offensive success Sacramento has enjoyed – but considering that some of Martin’s best years were as a second or even third option (behind guys like Mike Bibby and Ron Artest), it is completely conceivable to think that Martin could come back as a designated second scorer. Selfish has never been a part of Martin’s vocabulary.
