08:06 AM ET 08.11 | Kenyon Martin will hit the free-agent market without a familiar ally. Martin confirmed via text message that he's parted ways with Brian Dyke, the passionate agent who had been with the power forward since the early days in New Jersey. Martin confirmed he is seeking new representation as he prepares for what could be the last big contract of his career. The 2010-11 season was the last on that seven-year, $90-plus million contract, which had been the topic of conversation -- and, to some, consternation -- for years here in Denver. Before last season began, Martin had expressed desire to get an extension, but that didn't happen. Martin was asked earlier this summer about possibly signing with Denver and said: "It's not on me. My standpoint has been clear for a year now."

Maybe Brian told him, "you've been in the league 10 years, and have never played a full season. There ain't gonna be no big contract." Over those 7 years, Martin has missed 188 games. What is he expecting?

He's probably hiring Eddy Curry's agent - max pay for no play.... (MPNP)

K-mart has done fantastic, financially speaking. He should finish his career playing for the vet min for the team of his choosing.

And who is going to cough up the big bucks for him after the lockout? What agent is supposed to pull this off? Good luck with that, K-Mart.

He got 90 Million for the past few years? Wow. He is the wasteful spending poster child.
