Ratner Says Not Re-Signing KMart Was His Mistake

Peter Vecsey lets Nets owner Bruce Ratner give his explanation of what happened in July 2004 when the Nets decided to trade Kenyon Martin rather than give him a "max" contract. Ratner says the decision was his, was economic in nature and was a mistake...at least at the time. But he also says at the end of the day, things worked out very nicely for the Nets. Meanwhile, a Houston columnist says the lesson of the Martin situation is don't overpay.
