Let the Kenyon Martin sweepstakes begin

ESPN's Marc Stein reported on Twitter that Kenyon Martin is "officially an unrestricted free agent."

Martin had been locked into a contract in China with Xinjiang, despite having left the team in December.

Reports have several teams interested in the veteran power forward. Among the suitors:

- The Los Angeles Times writes that the Clippers will offer Martin a one-year, $2.5 million deal
- Brian Windhorst reported that the Miami Heat offered Martin a contract.
- Stein added the Spurs, Hawks and Knicks among the other teams pursuing K-Mart.

Martin, 34, is entering his 12th season in the league. He's averaged 13.5 points and 7.2 rebounds over his career.

With Denver in 2010-11, Martin averaged a career-low 8.6 points. His health has also always been an issue: he has played in more than 70 games just once in the last six seasons, and missed 58 games total the last two seasons.

Martin was one of three Nuggets to commit to play overseas in China during the NBA lockout. J.R. Smith and Wilson Chandler are both still playing.
