If there’s any UDFA more intriguing than the aforementioned Moore, it’s Jaylen Martin. Not only is Martin just 19, but the skills he showed off for Overtime Elite could translate very well at the NBA level. OTE has brought some incredibly interesting prospects to the league in recent years and Martin is certainly one of them.

In his year playing for OTE, Martin averaged 14.0 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 1.6 steals per game, shooting 37.6% from the field and 26.7% from deep on 6.0 attempts. He certainly struggled with consistency, but Martin had several moments where he looked like a star in the making.

Martin is still incredibly young with so much room to grow. For the Knicks to snag this sort of project player as an UDFA could be huge for the team’s future. You never know how well a player will pan out, especially one like Martin. His age has fans excited to see what he could eventually become.

The Summer League will be a way for Martin to prove himself. If he can start his NBA career off hot early on, it could do wonders for his chances to make the league. Regardless, he should be a very fun player to watch.
