9:16pm: Milwaukee has waived Martin, the team announced.
6:04pm: The Bucks intend to waive Kenyon Martin, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports (Twitter link). Milwaukee had signed the veteran big man for the remainder of the season back in January after he had completed his second 10-day deal with the team. Martin’s contract for 2014/15 pays him $414,551.
Milwaukee’s roster would come to 16, one over the limit, after today’s multiteam deal that sent Brandon Knight to the Suns and brought Michael Carter-Williams, Tyler Ennis, and Miles Plumlee to the Bucks. The team has also reportedly reached a buyout arrangement with Larry Sanders, who intends to sit out the remainder of the season due to personal reasons. If both Sanders and Martin are indeed waived, the team will have one empty roster spot as a result.
In 11 appearances for the Bucks this season Martin is averaging 1.8 points and 1.7 rebounds in 9.5 minutes per game. His career numbers over 14 seasons in the NBA are 12.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks per game. Martin’s career shooting percentages are .483/.234/.629.
