Milwaukee continues to shuffle roster, set to waive Kenyon Martin

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Bucks roster reconstruction continues...

Kenyon Martin signed a ten-day contract with the Bucks back on January 9th, and a second one on the 19th (that's ten days!). Nine days later, the Bucks inked him for the rest of the season... or through the All Star Break.

Injuries crept in for the 37-year-old, with a chest injury forcing him out of a game in his first contract, and an ankle injury sidelining him for the last five games prior to the break.  In eleven games, Martin averaged 1.8 points and 1.7 rebounds.

With the team sending the injured Kendall Marshall to Phoenix in today's mega-deal, the waiving of Martin clears enough roster spots for the three newcomers to step in. This also may be a sign of a snag in the much-discussed buyout of Larry Sanders, which most of us believed would open one of the two roster slots necessary for Michael Carter-Williams, Tyler Ennis and Miles Plumlee to join the Bucks. That has yet to happen, so Martin departs.
