The Charge is the G League affiliate of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Martin’s selection by the Charge means that he may be called up during the season to fill in for injured players, something that has happened with other members of the G League.
Remy Martin’s collegiate career
Martin previously played for four years at Arizona State University, before transferring to the University of Kansas as a super-senior. At KU, Martin averaged 8.6 points a game for the Jayhawks, who won Big 12 regular-season, postseason tourney and NCAA titles.
Martin shined in the NCAA Tournament, hitting four three-pointers and scoring 14 points in KU’s 72-49 win over North Carolina in the title game. Additionally, he had an important blocked shot in the second half of the game. After the game, he received the Midwest Regional most outstanding player award.
Martin’s time with KU earned Martin the well-deserved support of fans and spectators who look forward to his bright future in basketball.
Remy Martin is a Jayhawk legend, don’t forget it.
