MONDAY, 2:20pm: Talks are dead between Martin and Panathinaikos and the veteran won’t be signing there, David Pick of Eurobasket.net tweets.
SUNDAY, 8:00pm: The two sides are no longer talking, according to Cauchi, who cites a source. Martin was close to signing with the Greek team, but negotiations were taking too much time, Cauchi writes.
The 37-year-old Martin is a 15-year veteran of the NBA, and appeared in 11 games this season with the Bucks. He averaged 1.8 points and 1.7 rebounds in just 9.5 minutes of playing time.
Milwaukee signed Martin to a 10-day contract January 10th, then a second 10-day deal January 19th. On January 29th, he signed for the remainder of the season, but was waived February 19th and hasn’t played in the NBA since then.
Martin was picked first overall by the Nets in the 2000 NBA draft. He also played for the Nuggets, Clippers and Knicks during his NBA career. This will be Martin’s second stint overseas. He played briefly for the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of China during the 2011 lockout.
