Milwaukee Bucks News: Bucks sign Kenyon Martin to ten-day contract

The Milwaukee Bucks signed former All-Star power forward Kenyon Martin to a ten-day contract on Thursday, reuniting Martin with former New Jersey Nets teammate and now head coach Jason Kidd.

The Bucks waived guard Nate Wolters in order to clear space on their roster for Martin.

Players can sign two 10-day contracts with a club before the team either has to let them go or sign them to a contract for the rest of the season. The 37-year-old Martin signed two ten-day deals with the New York Knicks late in the 2012-13 season and impressed enough to land a contract for the remainder of the year plus a deal for 2013-14.

"I'll have to go with [the team's] recommendations," Sanders said. "See what they say is best for my health going forward."

All head coach Jason Kidd wants is what's best for Sanders.

"It hasn't affected us, and we just want Larry to get back as soon as possible," Kidd said. "He makes us a better team."
