Breakers Sign former Nets and Cavs guard Jeremiah Martin

The New Zealand Breakers have signed import guard Jeremiah Martin for NBL22, filling the hole left by Tai Webster's departure.

Martin, a combo guard, has played 18 NBA games for the Brooklyn Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers and joined the Atlanta Hawks for Summer League in August.

Last season Martin spent majority of the season with the Long Island Nets in the G League averaging 18.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 5.1 assists, ending the season with a call up to Cleveland where he played nine games.

It was Martin’s performances for the Nets in the NBA bubble last season which first caught the eye of Breakers Head Coach Dan Shamir.

“He had two very strong performances playing at point guard and did a lot of good things,” says Shamir.

“He’s a multi-dimensional player, a good defender, can defend multiple positions, can play with the ball and without the ball; that’s why he fits us.”

Last August, the 25-year-old had a career-high 24 points, six assists, and two rebounds for the Nets against the Orlando Magic. He also claimed 20 points and four assists against the Boston Celtics.

Martin played his college basketball at the University of Memphis, averaging 19.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 4.3 assists as a senior in the 2018-19 season.

Martin, Siva, and Besson now complete the NBL’s three import quota for the Breakers meaning there is just one local spot open on the roster.
