Former Rockets Player Explains Decision to Leave: ‘Purely NBA Business’

K.J. Martin was the first player selected by Rafael Stone as the general manager of the Houston Rockets in 2020. Stone traded for the No. 52 pick to bring in the talented former IMG Academy prospect, who quickly became a key part of the Rockets’ young roster. Over the next three seasons, Martin played in 206 games and averaged 10.5 points and 4.8 rebounds, showcasing his potential on the court.

Despite being traded to the Los Angeles Clippers in July, Martin harbored no negative feelings about his departure from Houston. He took to social media to explain that his exit was solely due to NBA business and had nothing to do with any personal reasons or pressure from his father. In his time with the Rockets, Martin played aggressively and attacked the rim, impressing former coach Stephen Silas with his consistency on the court.

Silas praised Martin’s development and emphasized his aggressive playing style and ability to attack the rim. To stay updated on all things Rockets, follow Inside The Rockets on Facebook and Twitter. Join us behind-the-scenes coverage of one of basketball’s most dynamic teams!
