Martin has played also professionally in Australia (NW Tasmania Thunder), ABA (LA Slam) and WCBL (LA Loop).
He attended Cal State - Chico until 2008 and it is his eighth season in pro basketball.
Martin's game is described as: Michael Martin is a well-rounded, focused ball player that listens eagerly, executes with no questions asked, and is ready to take his game to the next level. Mike's game is fueled by his enormous force on defense and exudes the physical talent that enables him to be a versatile player, a clever defender, with second nature anticipation guarding 3s, 4s and 5s. Shot blocking ability and a 7 foot wing-span, great lateral movement with on the ball defense. One of his best assets is his doubling down ability, which generates steals in large quantities. He is an excellent perimeter mid-range shooter and can pull the trigger right in-your-face with NBA 3pt range. Michael is a team player who plays unselfishly, he is very coachable and poised and can deliver each time. Michael is humble and charming spirit, who works hard and consistently, each year adding new elements to his game.
