NBA trades: Knicks trade Brewer, sign Kenyon Martin to ten-day deal

Soobum Im-US PRESSWIRE

The Knicks sent Ronnie Brewer to the Oklahoma City Thunder for a future second round draft pick, and signed Kenyon Martin to a ten-day contract with the available roster slot.

The New York Knicks made minor moves with the passing of the trade deadline, sending Ronnie Brewer to the Oklahoma City Thunder for a 2014 second round draft pick, while also signing veteran free agent Kenyon Martin to a ten-day contract.

Brewer started the season strong for the Knicks, but as the season progressed, quickly fell out of favor with the team. He began the season slotted as the starting small forward and was a contributor to New York's hot start, but prior to the trade was barely able to crack the rotation.


With the trade of Brewer, that left an open roster spot for the Knicks to utilize. With that, the Knicks quickly moved to sign Martin. Kenyon hasn't played in the league since late last season. With Rasheed Wallace and Marcus Camby having health issues and out indefinitely, signing a veteran frontcourt player who has experience playing with Carmelo Anthony, Camby, J.R. Smith, and Jason Kidd to fill the gap in the meantime on a short-term contract is a small price to pay to roll the dice. No fireworks for the Knicks today, just small adjustments to their roster.
