Kings Player

Kevin Martin
With Ron Artest traded away, Kings player Kevin Martin finds himself firmly under the glare of the spotlight. Sac Mag readers expect some great shooting from him this season, and they have every right to be optimistic. Since the 6-foot-7-inch shooting guard was drafted by the Kings in 2004, he has consistently taken his game to higher levels. Let’s do the numbers from his 15 games last season without Artest: 28.7 points, 2.0 3-pointers, 4.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.5 steals on 48.3 percent shooting from the field and 88.5 percent from the line. And Martin can practically carry a certified nice-guy card in his wallet, he’s so humble and level-headed. Which makes him a winner all around.
