Kenyon Martin is proof that you can return home, but only if the price is right as the 34-year-old forward is looking for a new deal and the team that drafted him out of college is on his short list of places in the upcoming NBA season.
Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated has reported that Martin has narrowed his list down to the Brooklyn Nets and LA Lakers. The decision could come down to money or playing time and a decision will be made shortly.
Martin averaged just 5.2 points and 4.3 rebounds with the LA Clippers last season, but the veteran played just 22 minutes per game, his lowest during his twelve years in the league and signing with Brooklyn could give him the boost in minutes to increase those totals.
While most players enter the league for money and fame, veterans like Martin could look to win NBA titles after years of missed opportunities. While the veteran forward still has a few decent years left in him, we will find out shortly if money or titles is his top option when he signs his next contract.
