Former NBA star expresses his emotional reaction to his son being traded for James Harden.
The Los Angeles Clippers included freshly acquired player KJ Martin in their trade package for James Harden, sending the athletic wing to the Philadelphia 76ers after only three games.
Kenyon Martin Sr., Martin's father, expressed his emotional reaction to the trade during a live part of Gil's Arena.
"I have to break the news to the little ones who get so excited when KJ comes by." That's what people don't understand," Martin explained.
This element of the business can be difficult for fans to understand since, while they may see a player being assigned to a new team, it is the familial dynamic that is always difficult.
Martin saw playing for the Clippers as an opportunity to spend more time with his family. While the 76ers may wind up being a better basketball fit for him, the transition is always difficult.
As Kenyon Martin Sr. stated, he is pleased for his son to gain more playing time than he did in his first few games with the Clippers.
With so many senior players ahead of him on the depth chart in Los Angeles, KJ was destined for a limited role this season.
While it's unclear how much bigger that role will be in Philadelphia, or whether the 76ers want to send him somewhere, it's probable that this move will benefit KJ on the court.
