NBA Draft Spotlight: Cody Martin

Cody Martin is a tough, versatile wing that will be a candidate for a two-way contract. An invite to the NBA combine gave teams a better look one of the driving forces behind the growth of Nevada’s program.

Position: SF From: Nevada Class/YOB: Senior
Height: 6’6 Weight: 192 Wingspan: 6’10

Strengths:

  • Consistent, active defender with the length and IQ to guard all three perimeter spots. He was the best perimeter defender in the Mountain West during the last two years
  • Can play all three perimeter positions as well, spending a lot of time as the point guard for the Wolfpack. He has good vision and plays under control
  • Competes on the backboard despite lacking ideal strength
  • Tough downhill penetrator that uses ball screens well to create space

Weaknesses:

  • Underwhelming outside shooter. Shooting is the one real deficiency in his game. He took a nice step as a senior after avoiding the three-pointer for his first three college seasons
  • Not a great athlete. A below-the-rim finisher without a lot of explosion changing ends
  • Lacks the strength of a typical defensive wing
  • Doesn’t have much of a mid-range game to go to when the lane is clogged
