Former Butler forward Kelan Martin talks about his multiple pre-draft workouts and draft night hopes.

Kelan Martin, who left from Butler as the program’s second-leading scorer, has signed a 2-year deal with the Indiana Pacers, according to ESPN.

Martin played for Butler from 2014-2018, scoring 2,047 points and hitting 214 3-pointers. After spending the 2018 season playing in Germany, he signed a two-way contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2019. He averaged 6.4 points and 3.1 rebounds in 31 games for Minnesota last season, shooting 39%. 

Prior to the 2018 NBA Draft, Martin worked out for the Pacers.

As a senior for Butler, Martin averaged 21.2 points and 6.3 rebounds and was named First Team All-Big East. He played in the NCAA Tournament in each of his four seasons with the program, joining teammate Tyler Wideman as the first players in Butler history to accomplish the feat.
