The Nets may get back former Net K-Mart in a trade for Carmelo Anthony. Martin will make about $16 million this season, his last season under contract for Denver, and that money has, arguably, kept Denver from making more roster moves this summer. If the the Nets take Martin with Melo the trade could get done. A package that Devin Harris, or Troy Murphy and Terrence Williams and draft picks makes a lot of sense for the Nuggets. K-Mart would replace Troy Murphy at the power forward position. But a source said Martin will miss "significant time" this season: K-Mart is working diligently on strengthening his knees this summer. In the playoffs last season, Nuggets power forward Kenyon Martin valiantly came back from injury to his left Knee, but he said those efforts may keep him out for some time this season. Martin had underwent left knee surgery this summer. K-Mart was a big time player when he play for the Nets. The Nets miss that when management let him get away. To get Melo on the team, bringing back Martin is a no brainer. The New Nets would bring back that swagger that was missing for years.
