By adding Kenyon Martin, Raymond Felton says the Knicks have gained an enforcer, someone who can push back against other teams with physicality.
“He brings a bruiser,” Felton said. “He can guard [positions] 1 through 5. At the same time, when we get knocked on the floor or put on the ground, you know he’s going to do it to the other team. It’s always good to have a guy like that.”
After not playing in four straight games and five of his first six as a Knick, Martin got a long look in Thursday’s 95-94 nail-biter loss to the Thunder. The 35-year-old forward, who is operating on his second 10-day contract, was handed 17 minutes of action, delivering four points, a steal, some tough defense and a hard foul on Kevin Durant (one of six fouls Martin racked up).
