Born Kenyon Lee Martin has an estimated net worth of $35 million. Martin is a professional NBA player as Power forward of New York Knicks team.  Martin previously played for NBA’s New Jersey Nets, Denver Nuggets, and Los Angeles Clippers and the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of China. Martin began playing basketball when he was in high school where he was named the school's hall of fame in 2009. Martin attended University of Cincinnati and played for the Cincinnati Bearcats.  In his junior he led Cincinnati to a 27-6 record and was named second-team All-Conference USA and, in the summer following, he led the U.S. team to the gold medal in the World University Games. Martin’s professional career began in 2002 when he along with Jason Kidd, Kerry Kittles, Keith Van Horn and Richard Jefferson led the Nets to the 2002 NBA Finals, where they were swept by the Los Angeles Lakers. In the 2004 NBA All-Star Game, Martin scored 17 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and had 3 assists where he played for New Jersey Nets. On November 15, 2006, Martin underwent his second knee operation in less than two years. For the 2007–08 season, Martin changed his uniform number from 6 to the number 4 to symbolize a fresh start to his career. Due to the 2011 NBA lockout, Martin opted to sign a one-year contract with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association. It was reported that his contract made him the highest paid player in the Chinese league's history but on December 24, 2011, he was released from the club so that he could "take care of family affairs." On February 3, 2012, Martin signed with the Los Angeles Clippers. On February 21, 2013, Martin agreed to join the New York Knicks on a 10-day contract. He eventually replaced Tyson Chandler which provided a large amount of help to a Knicks team. On July 25, 2013, Martin re-signed with the Knicks for the 2013–14 season.
