Kevin Martin update

Kevin Martin is cleared to play friday vs the sixers. If the Tyreke Evans/Kevin Martin back court works out successfully do you think the kings have one of the best back courts in the league? with a willing passer and slasher in Tyreke and a potent scorer in Kevin Martin who can score in a variety ways...also both can get an opposing team into foul trouble easily(martin avg 12attempts per game last year)...

Starting backcourt: PG Evans

If you mean a Starting backcourt of: PG Evans SG Martin 

Yes that would be a top 5 backcourt.

Are the Kings going to start Evans at PG when Martin returns? Or will Udrih start at PG, Evans at SG, Martin at SF?

i think k-mart would be a liability on the defensive end if he were to be starting at SF. Anyway the kings are kinda stacked at SF right now but if they brought Casspi as a back up Sg and Donte Greene as a back up SF and ship nocioni... its always a possibility though

^ Yeah I agree. I think the Kings should start Evans at PG & Martin at SG. We will see if they do that or not though.

^ i totally agree.

With all of yall. The Kings will be dangerous if they start K. Mart and Reke at the same time. I strongly agree with Taylor that cassipi has played lights out .

My only concern is that

My only concern is that Kevin Martin can adjust to the style of play Reke brings. K Mart is used to being the man on this team but K Mart has never had this team at the level of play it is currently at. The reason the Kings have played so well is Tyreke Evans, he brings a swagger to this team that they did not have before. If Martin can knock down spot up jumper consistently and drive every once in awhile they will be alright. But that being said I think Kevin Martin will put team in front of himself and adjust for the betterment of the KINGS.

Martin

People need to remember KMartin was the leading scorer on Sacramento when he WAS NOT the first option. He only played last season or 2 as the main scorer cause nobody else was doing the job. He was not ball dominant like most people seem to think.

Also KMartin was averaging what 12 to 14 shots a game and still was in the upper end of the league in scoring. Most people who are not Kings fans don't realize half his points are from Free Throws not ball dominating.

Gotta love how people think a guy averaging 23 to 25 a night is ball dominate. Tyreke and Martin should be just fine, only one way to know .. let em play 42 + games together and see.

I'm glad to finally see someone talk about Kevin Martin who has actually seen him play more than two or three times. You are 100% correct in saying that he does not have to have the ball in his hands to score effectivley. When you watch him play with a quality passing PG, or any position for that matter (Brad Miller), he usually only has the ball in his hands long enough to either shoot, drive, or pass the ball; he is not someone who plays the role of court leader, he is much more of an extremely effective off-the-ball type player.
