Lakers Interested in Kenyon Martin and Rasheed Wallace


Kenyon Martin is expected to decide by this weekend which NBA team he’ll join, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. The Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs, Atlanta Hawks and New York Knicks have expressed interest in signing the veteran forward. Martin has been working out in Los Angeles, where he owns a house…If the Lakers don’t sign Martin, they could have interest in adding Rasheed Wallace, who contacted the team several weeks ago, a league source said. Wallace retired after the 2009-10 season, but has told friends he’s interested in returning to the NBA.”

While both players would be decent editions to a bench that is very thin, the Lakers need athletic guards and small forwards.  They are pretty set with the bigs.

For comedic reasons I would like them to sign Sheed.
