Warriors Interested In Kenyon Martin

After acquiring veteran guard Jarrett Jack earlier this week, the Warriors have shifted their focus to adding another big man. According to GM Bob Myers, Golden State is targeting power forwards, and one report yesterday linked the team to Carl Landry. A sign-and-trade might be necessary to snag Landry, but the Warriors are also eyeing more affordable options, including Kenyon Martin, says Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com.

Already over the cap and still hoping to re-sign Brandon Rush, the Warriors likely won't use the full $5MM mid-level exception this summer, since they have no desire to become a taxpaying team. That could make it hard to land a target like Landry or Antawn Jamison, but Martin, coming off a down year, likely wouldn't require a significant investment. He'd also provides the sort of experience and toughness that Myers and owner Joe Lacob have said the Warriors are seeking this offseason.

Using Hoops Rumors' 2012 Free Agent Tracker, here's a longer list of the power forwards still on the market.

    Just sign him for a 1 year 500,000 as a backup power forward. He’ll relate well with the first round draft picks to (he was one too).

    • Warriors would have to pay him the veteran’s minimum which is way more than $500,000.

  2. I dont trust Boguts knee

    Come on Warriors, or Myers, keep me believing, sign Antawn Jamison and let him shine again in a Warriors uniform, guy averaged 17.2 PPG last year as a 34-35 year old player. Sign Antawn, so i can truly believe that we will make the play offs, not a mediocre 10th-11th seed for the past 30 years
