Kevin Martin Rumors

Khris Middleton to become minority owner of NBL team

Marc Stein: The Bucks’ Khris Middleton will soon be named as a @BrisbaneBullets minority owner in the @NBL , sources say, to become the latest NBA star to move into the ownership ranks in Australia. Middleton joins a group led by longtime NBA guard Kevin Martin, Brisbane’s majority owner.
I always got along with Martin while covering him on the Kings beat for The Sacramento Bee, and went to his big day, in part, because he had been classy enough to drive an hour outside of town to attend my father’s funeral nearly two years before. I was surprised to see Lowry at the wedding, though, as there had been rumblings that he’d been particularly hard on Martin at times during the previous season. Lowry’s presence at the wedding said something about his ability to create bonds with teammates despite his tough-love approach.
Ray: Can you name an all-star five for the Kings from your years with the team, as well as an opponents’ all-star five? Gary Gerould: For the Kings, I have to include Mitch Richmond, Chris Webber and Peja Stojaković. I probably have to include DeMarcus Cousins. I know that is frontline-heavy and I have not done justice to guards. I thought about Reggie Theus; I thought about Mike Bibby; I thought about Kevin Martin. In view of the success that the Kings had in that eight season run where Bibby was involved, I would make him probably the fifth guy. So Richmond, Stojaković, Webber, Cousins, Bibby is the five that I would go with.
