Odds & Ends: Martin, Knicks, Cavs, Andersen

January 9 2013 at 9:51pm CDT By Zach Links

Kenyon Martin is one of many talented NBA veterans who has so far been unable to find a home in 2012/13.  That may change soon as the Knicks are showing interest in him, but a source tells Ian Begley of ESPNNewYork.com that they have only discussed him internally to this point.  The Knicks haven't reached out to Martin's representative yet, but that could be around the corner.  Here's tonight's look around the Association..

  • Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert did an on-air interview during the telecast of tonight's game to discuss the current state of the club.  While 2012/13 has been difficult for Cleveland thus far, the owner vowed that better days are ahead, according to the Plain Dealer (on Twitter).  "This year has not been an easy year…Things will improve. There are better days ahead. We will get through it," said Gilbert.
  • One NBA executive told Andrew Perna of RealGM that we likely won't see significant trades go down until February.  “There hasn’t really been a lot of talk going around,” the executive said. “There is general chatter, but nothing serious. A lot of teams are trying to figure out what is going on with [the Grizzlies] and all the names that have been thrown around.
  • Nuggets coach George Karl gave Chris Andersen a strong endorsement in an interview with Chris Tomasson of FOX Sports Florida (on Twitter).  While admitting that the 34-year-old isn't what he once was, he believes that he could be a solid piece for the Heat for 15-25 minutes per night.  The forward known as Birdman auditioned for Miami earlier this week.
