Kenyon Martin has announced his retirement as an NBA player.
Martin was the number one overall pick by the Nets in 2000 and later played for the Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Clippers, New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks.
"It's been a great 15 years," Martin, 37, told Yahoo Sports. "Thanks to all the fans that supported me over the years. But a time does come when you have to walk away, and the time is now for me. I'm ready for the next chapter of my life. I would like to thank the Nets, Nuggets, Clippers, Knicks and Bucks for the opportunity to play the game that I love.
"It's been real. Thanks for the love."
Martin's basketball career ended when the Bucks opted not to sign him for the remainder of the season after he completed two 10-day contracts and was waived on Feb. 19.
Martin said he is interested in coaching on the college or NBA level.
