The New York Knicks re-signed forward Kenyon Martin on Thursday.

Martin averaged 7.2 points and 5.3 rebounds in 18 games (11 starts) with New York last season. In 12 playoff games, he averaged 5.8 points and 4.5 rebounds.

"Kenyon did a fantastic job for us once he signed in February," New York general manager Glen Grunwald said. "He strengthened our frontline going into an important stretch of the season with some very impressive performances. We are happy to have him back."

Martin, the No. 1 overall pick of the 2000 NBA Draft, was an All-Star with the Nets in 2003-04 and has averaged 12.8 points and 7.0 rebounds over 714 career games with New Jersey, Denver, the Los Angeles Clippers and Knicks.
