About Cody Martin
Cody Martin is a versatile wing who showed growth as a shot maker late in his college career. Widely regarded as a top-75 prospect in the high school class of 2014 out of Oak Hill Academy, Martin started his career at North Carolina State, but had a breakout year after transferring to Nevada. Earning All-Mountain West honors each of the last two seasons, he declared and subsequently withdrew from the 2018 NBA Draft, returning to school to average 12.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 4.9 assists per game as a senior to help the Wolfpack to the NCAA Tournament.
Twin brother, Caleb Martin, is a highly regarded prospect in the NCAA class of 2019 who averaged 19.2 points and 5.1 rebounds per game as a senior alongside Cody at Nevada.
- Has solid size for a wing measured at 6’5.5 in shoes at the 2019 NBA Combine to go along with a lean 192-pound frame and a 6’10.25 wingspan. A fluid all-around athlete with a good first step, Martin’s improvement as a senior had more to do with his shooting than his athleticism.
- Displayed a fairly impressive floor game and instincts over his last two seasons in the college game spending time playing on and off the ball but showed significant growth as a jump shooter late in his career. Scored at a strong rate out of ball screen and spot up situations while playing a critical role as the most willing passer on a Nevada team with no shortage of offensive weapons. Struck an impressive balance between setting the table for others and looking for his own shot this season.
- Very solid defender with nice toughness. Shows good instincts in the passing lanes and does some little things stunting and recovering with a sense of urgency off the ball. Good rebounder for a wing. Has room to get stronger.
- Allowed 0.762 points per Isolation possession[52nd percentile] displaying good intensity and solid feet defending opposing guards.
