K-Mart goes to China

Well if you are keeping count, there are currently six Denver Nuggets players playing overseas and now three in China.

Kenyon Martin received the largest offer in China history, according to the Denver Post - the actual numbers of the contract were not available. Martin will play for Xingiang Guanghui.

He joins Wilson Chandler and JR Smith in China, which makes it very unlikely for the three to play in the 2011-12 season – if there is one. All three are free agents, with Chandler being the most likely of three to resign with the Nuggets – since he is a free agent.

However, this gives the Nuggets fewer options to look at if the NBA lockout is lifted and makes it more important for the team to resign Arron Afflalo and Nene.

Other players that are playing overseas are Danilo Gallinari in Italy, Timofey Mozgov in Russia and Ty Lawson in Lithuania. All three are under contract with the Nuggets and can play when the lockout is lifted.
