When the Knicks signed Martin in late February, no one had any idea how important he would prove to be to the season. K-Mart appeared in just 18 regular season games, but he made 11 starts mainly in place of injured Tyson Chandler.

Martin brought a needed toughness and defensive mentality to the team. He averaged 7.2 points and 5.3 rebounds in 23.9 minutes per game. The Knicks were 13-5 in the 18 regular season games he played.

Martin posted a +59 rating in his limited time, further accentuating his impact on the court. His Per 36 numbers were solid for a player who was not a focal point, with 10.8 points, 7.9 rebounds, 1.4 blocks and 1.3 steals per 36 minutes.

"Kenyon did a fantastic job for us once he signed in February," Knicks GM Glen Grunwald said. "He strengthened our frontline going into an important stretch of the season with some very impressive performances. We are happy to have him back."

Now that he is back, Martin bolsters a Knicks frontline that will include Chandler, Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire and Andrea Bargnani. Is that strong enough to take on the size of the Indiana Pacers and Chicago Bulls, plus the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets?

Are we gonna invite Terrance Jennings to camp too? We should let him and Jeremy Tyler both duke it out.

I'm a bigger fan of Tyler (for a long term project, imagine Javale McGee but not as dumb) but Jennings has better NBA game right now w/ his pick and pops and defense


Bring in Leslie (non-guaranteed 2 yr contract), Tyler, Murry, and Jennings to camp...

Berman

Daniel Artest, Metta World Peace’s brother who had a brief professional career, told The Post the Knicks were missing a certain element last season — “a goon.’’ He feels his brother can fill the bill.

The Knicks got beat — and beat up — by the Pacers last May in the playoffs. And they signed World Peace partly with the rugged Pacers in mind.

“They’ve got a good team but they never had that goon — that defensive goon last season,’’ Daniel told The Post yesterday from his home in Indianapolis. “Someone that’s not afraid. If Ron was on the team, they would have gotten past the Pacers.’’

The former Ron Artest is renowned as one of the league’s all-time most physical players, and that has gotten him in trouble. He was suspended 73 games for the infamous “Malice at the Palace” brawl when he played for Indiana. He’d probably like to shed some of that image.

“I’m not worried [he’s washed up],’’ Daniel said. “It’s all about heart. The way Ron plays, he will help the Knicks out the way he plays defense and take pressure off Carmelo [Anthony], [who] won’t have to guard the best forward guy anymore. [World Peace] can guard the power forward. He held a lot of power forwards like Zach Randolph, David West and LaMarcus [Aldridge] last season way below their scoring average. He’s still very strong and has a lot of game left.’’

Daniel Artest doesn’t mince words when he describes his brother’s physical game. Daniel wore No. 51 at South Nevada Community College in honor of his father, who wore the number in high school at Long Island City. Daniel didn’t play high school ball because he periodically dropped out.

It was at Daniel’s suggestion that World Peace wear 51 for the Knicks. When asked to describe his own game, Daniel said, “I’m the non-NBA version of Ron. I play tough, emotional, and I’m dirty, too.’’

The younger Daniel, 6-foot-5 and 275 pounds, didn’t follow his brother’s NBA path. He did play on the Kings’ summer league team in 2007 and tried out with the Lakers in 2009. He also had a stint in Germany and played in a minor league, the ABA, with Kentucky, Atlanta and Indianapolis.

Daniel still communicates with World Peace virtually every day and claims his brother’s first choice was to play with the Clippers for family reasons after being waived by the Lakers.

“The Clippers were his first choice,” Daniel said. “He loves L.A. and wanted to stay. But the Clippers had their team ready. The Knicks were the other option.’’

“I think it’s awesome. He gets to go back home to finish his career where it started. He’s beloved in New York. Everyone I’ve ever spoken to always said they wanted him to go to the Knicks. He’s putting in all the work this summer to keep Knicks fans happy. They can love you one day and be against you the next if you don’t perform.’’

Daniel has been an ardent Spurs fan since he was 10 and tried to orchestrate his brother to San Antonio. Their father, Ron Artest Sr., was in the Navy and always trumped up Spurs legend David Robinson. And Daniel knew fellow New Yorker Lloyd Daniels, who wound up in San Antonio.

Daniel said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich expressed interest in his brother during the playoffs.

“I finally met Popovich, told him I was a big Spurs fan and he said he always liked Ron on his team,’’ Daniel said. “I relayed the message, tried to convince [World Peace], but my brother didn’t believe me.’’

As it was, Daniel feels his brother was miscast by Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni.

“Personally, I don’t think D’Antoni used him right,’’ Daniel said. “He should have posted him up more and catered to Dwight [Howard]. They were running and running. Nobody was happy there. That’s why they had the season they had.’’

Will World Peace fit in with Knicks coach Mike Woodson?

“He’s a defensive coach,’’ Daniel said. “He always talks defense first. And he’s never had enough guys like Metta on his team.’’

All it took was one report and one legacy, one dynasty. Someone says the Lakers want to nab Carmelo Anthony in the summer of 2014, says they could have up to $50 million in cap space, and someone else says Kobe and ‘Melo are best buds, says this is the Lakers, they get who they want when they want. Did we all forget Anthony currently plays in New York City? The big-city Knicks aren’t letting their franchise player bolt without a f!ght, and they’re offering him what Miami offered Dwyane Wade before the titanic summer of 2010: the chance to pick his future teammates.

That summer, Wade courted his hometown Chicago Bulls, armed with Derrick Rose, cap space and a plethora of solid backup singers yearning for a star. In the end, Miami’s adopted son stayed with the Heat, then brought Chris Bosh and eventually LeBron James along with him.

Like the rest of the NBA, Anthony surely hasn’t forgotten that summer, and HOOPSWORLD reports the Knicks have already hit the NBA’s leading scorer with their pitch:

On the Anthony front, there is a chance he looks at greener pastures in 2014, but sources close to the process say the Knicks have already let Anthony know that their books will be basically clear in 2015 and he can pick his teammates much as Wade did in Miami.

With the New York market behind him and the almost unlimited checkbook of the Knicks, Anthony will have a lot of options in 2015 and while teams like the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers might be tempting in 2014, Anthony has a lot of influence in New York and they are willing to let him build his own team in NYC in 2015

By 2015, the massive contracts of Amar’e Stoudemire, Tyson Chandler and Andrea Bargnani are all off the books. J.R. Smith and Raymond Felton have modest player options for 2015-16 totaling a little more than $10 million. Pablo Prigioni‘s $1.7 million is non-guaranteed. Iman Shumpert and Tim Hardaway Jr. could still be on their rookie deals (C.J. Leslie as well). The cupboard is clear. The Knicks can make a splash.

It’s a hard sell, asking a star player in his prime to wait. But as HOOPSWORLD points out, there’s a good chance both ‘Melo and LeBron stay where they are next summer, turning what could be a monster free agency offseason into just an appetizer featuring dishes like Chris Bosh, Rudy Gay and possibly Brandon Jennings.

What will ‘Melo do next summer?
