NBA insider Chris Haynes has reported that the Phoenix Suns are expressing interest in 23-year-old wing K.J. Martin, who is currently with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Despite Martin’s limited playing time, averaging just 7.6 minutes per game this season, his earlier stint with the Houston Rockets showcased a more prominent role, averaging over 20 minutes per game during his first three seasons in the NBA.

During his rookie season, he averaged 9.3 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.

According to NBA Insider Marc Stein, the 76ers are open to trading players acquired through the James Harden trade earlier this season, K.J. Martin is among those available.

Stein added, “Word is that the 76ers are looking for a quality second-round pick in a potential deal.”

The Phoenix Suns, currently 6th in the Western Conference with a record of 26-19, are anticipated to be active leading up to the trade deadline on February 8th.

The trade deadline is February 8th.
