Martin signed a one-year, non-guaranteed contract with the Cavaliers on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Martin's free agency comes to an end Friday after joining the Cavaliers. The former LSU standout is coming off a season in Orlando where he was unable to carve out a significant role in the team's rotation. He'll join Cleveland now for training camp and preseason but may have a tough time making the final roster given the nature of his contract.
Martin will be an unrestricted free agent this summer after the Magic declined to extend him a qualifying offer for the 2019-20 season prior to Saturday's deadline, Roy Parry of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Since Martin finished out the final year of his rookie deal in 2018-19, the Magic would have had the right to match any offer he received from the league's other 29 teams had they elected to extend a qualifying offer. The Magic's reluctance to do so suggests the team has limited interest in bringing the big man back after he averaged 2.7 points and 1.7 rebounds in 7.8 minutes per game over 42 appearances in his lone season with the club. Martin's numbers weren't much better in his first three years in the NBA in Memphis, so he may be forced to settle for a deal with limited guaranteed money attached to it as he hits the open market.
Martin managed three points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and two rebounds in seven minutes during Sunday's 105-97 loss to the Grizzlies.
Martin has appeared in two of the last three games after being a healthy scratch for six straight tilts. Given that he's averaging just 8.1 minutes per game across 34 appearances this season, Martin can be avoided across all fantasy formats.
Martin posted eight points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt), one rebound and one block across 16 minutes Monday in the Magic's 122-103 win over the Hawks.
After a five-game stretch in which he failed to see the floor, Martin has re-entered the rotation as the backup power forward with Aaron Gordon (back) sidelined. Gordon turned in a full practice Tuesday and is trending toward suiting up Wednesday in Brooklyn, so there's a decent possibility Martin will drop back out of the rotation if the contest is reasonably competitive.
Martin will come off the bench Monday against the Wizards.
Martin entered the starting five Sunday with Aaron Gordon sidelined and finished with seven points and six boards in 27 minutes of action. Gordon is back healthy Monday, so Martin will return to his usual role as off the bench, where he's highly unlikely to be fantasy-relevant.
Martin had seven points (2-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists, two steals, and one block in 27 minutes during Sunday's 115-89 victory over New York.
Martin set season-highs in just about every category Sunday, moving into the starting lineup, replacing the injured Aaron Gordon (ankle). While the shooting was not there, he did contribute across the board and certainly appeared comfortable on the floor. If Gordon is forced to miss any more time, Martin will likely be the beneficiary and is worth a flier in deeper formats.
Martin is in Sunday's starting lineup against the Knicks, Dante Marchitelli of Fox Sports Florida reports.
With Aaron Gordon officially out with an ankle injury, Martin will see an increased role as expected. He's averaging 2.7 points along with 2.1 rebounds through the first seven games of the season.
Martin could pick up increased minutes Sunday if Aaron Gordon (ankle) doesn't play, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.
Gordon is nursing a lingering left ankle injury, and his status at this point is very much up in the air. Coach Steve Clifford implied that if Gordon doesn't play, he'd likely pivot to Martin, rather than moving rookie Mo Bamba into an unfamiliar role. Martin played just six minutes in Friday's win over Washington, and he's yet to score more than six points in any of the seven games in which he's appeared.
Martin managed six points (3-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds, and one assist in 12 minutes during Friday's 120-88 loss to the Hornets.
Martin was a healthy scratch during Wednesday's season-opening win over the Heat. However, his ability to stretch the floor with his shot could help him earn regular minutes as a backup power forward on a team that's desperately lacking on the offensive end. With that being said, Martin can likely be left on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Martin was traded from the Grizzlies to the Magic on Monday in exchange for Dakari Johnson, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Grizzlies are also reportedly sending cash to Orlando in a deal that is expected to open up $1 million of cap space in Memphis. Martin played in 73 games (36 starts) this past season, averaging career highs across the board of 7.7 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 22.8 minutes. Look for him to slot in as depth behind Aaron Gordon and Jonathan Isaac, likely competing with Khem Birch for reserve minutes.
Martin averaged 7.7 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.0 assists across 73 games played with Memphis during the 2017-18 NBA season.
Martin established career highs in almost every statistical category in what was his best season of his young three-year career. The former first-round pick from LSU is set to make around $2.4 million next year as he enters his final year of his four-year contract signed back in July of 2015.
Martin (ankle) will miss the remainder of the season with a left ankle sprain, Michael Wallace of Grind City Media reports.
Martin suffered what the team is calling a serious ankle sprain in Wednesday's loss to the Pelicans, and he'll be held out of the Grizzlies' remaining four contests. In order to fill his roster spot, Memphis will sign Omari Johnson from the Memphis Hustle of the G League.
Martin is out for Friday's contest against the Kings as a result of a left ankle injury.
It's not exactly clear when Martin picked up the injury, though he played just 22 minutes in the team's most recent game after seeing 30-plus minutes in six straight tilts. As a result of his absence, Ivan Rabb is a strong candidate to see extra run at power forward.
Martin accumulated seven points (3-6 FG, 1-2 FT), 14 rebounds, and two assists in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 108-103 win over the Trail Blazers.
Martin finished with a career high in rebounding, and he has hauled in double-digit boards in five of his last 19 appearances after failing to do so once through his first 51 appearances this season. The third-year forward continues to enjoy a prominent role for the Grizzlies as they look to develop their younger players.
Martin tallied 10 points (5-13 FG, 0-4 3Pt), 10 rebounds, four blocks, two assists and one steal in 37 minutes during Saturday's 100-93 loss to the Lakers.
Martin blocked a season-high four shots while also recording his second double-double of the season. Martin has been a nice surprise for the Grizzlies, especially over the past few weeks. In what is their worst season in what seems like forever, the team is getting a look at all their developmental players and this has afforded Martin with an opportunity to play some more minutes. He is still not a must-own in standard leagues but could be worth a flier as it appears he is at least going to get minutes on a regular basis.
Martin produced 12 points (5-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), and eight rebounds across 32 minutes in Thursday's 140-79 loss to the Hornets.
Martin started with Gasol out Thursday night, and was one of the bright spots in an ugly loss. He shot extremely poorly from the floor, needing 15 shots for just 12 points, but he was one of only three Grizzlies players to reach the double-digit threshold. He will continue to be in a rotation at big man going forward, but could see more minutes in what should be deemed a lost season.
Martin collected 16 points (6-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five assists, four rebounds, and one block in 29 minutes during Monday's 121-103 loss to the Bucks.
Martin started alongside JaMychal Green and Marc Gasol as the Grizzlies went big once again, moving Ben McLemore to the bench. McLemore and Martin both delivered efficient stat lines, though it wasn't enough to help the team end a now 18-game losing streak. Martin will likely remain part of the starting five for Thursday's bout with the Bulls, though the third-year forward was listed as questionable with a foot injury entering Monday's matchup.
Martin will start Monday against the Bucks.
After initially being ruled questionable for Monday, Martin jumps into the starting lineup, bumping Ben McLemore out. The Grizzlies are putting out a big lineup, with Martin starting alongside Marc Gasol and JaMychal Green. While it's unsure if the Grizzlies are turning to the bigger lineup for the matchup or if Martin will stay with the starters moving forward, Martin should continue to see his fair share of minutes, as he's averaging 32.6 minutes over his last six games.
Martin (foot) is available to play in Monday's game against the Bucks.
Martin was a surprise addition to the injury report Monday, as he had seen a full 29 and 30 minutes, respectively, over the last two contests. However, the foot checked out during pregame warmups and he's now been cleared to take the court as usual. Martin could see his playing time take a minor hit with Marc Gasol returning from his off day for rest purposes, though the Grizzlies still seem determined to get Martin has much developmental opportunities down the stretch.
Martin (foot) is questionable for Monday's game against the Bucks.
Martin missed two games last week due to sore knee but it now appears as if his right foot is giving him trouble. Look for more updates on his status to come after morning shootaround just before tip. If he is ruled out, expect Chandler Parsons to see increased minutes off the bench.
