Free-agent forward Kenyon Martin has reached agreement on a one-year deal to return to the New York Knicks, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.
Martin will make the veteran's minimum of $1.4 million.
Martin, 35, made a strong impression on the Knicks' front office and coaching staffs to earn his return to New York.
After signing with the Knicks late last season, Martin played an integral role in the frontcourt in the final month of the regular season and playoffs. He averaged 7.2 points and 5.3 rebounds in nearly 24 minutes in the regular season, including 11 starts.
Some had wanted Martin to come to Boston last season as the Celtics needed frontcourt help with Jared Sulliger sidelined with back surgery and Darko Milicic bowing out to deal with personal matters after playing all of five minutes in 2012-2013.
Now that the Celtics are no longer championship conte...

World Peace, who recently signed a new deal with the Knicks, will apparently have a new name to go along, although he says he won’t change his name legally. Formerly known as Ron Artest, he changed his name to Metta World Peace in September...

Well, World Peace is nothing if not a man of the people, and he's giving you an opportunity to fix it.

Metta World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest, will change his name again this season.
