At the age of just 33 and after representing five NBA franchises, Kevin Martin has announced his retirement from the game.
The former shooting guard broke the news via an advertisement placed in his hometown newspaper, the Zanesville (Ohio) Times Recorder.
Martin spent 12 seasons in the league and played for the Sacramento Kings, Houston Rockets, Oklahoma City Thunder, Minnesota Timberwolves and San Antonio Spurs.
"My family and close friends have known since June of the direction I wanted my life to go. Those were the toughest conversations that I have ever had but with the ultimate support I knew I was making the right decision," Martin wrote in the advertisement.
K-Mart was an impressive knockdown shooter in his prime and will be mostly remembered for his time in Sacramento.
He played five full seasons with the Kings and recorded a career-high average of 24.6 points in the 2008-09 season.
In 2010, he was traded to the Rockets in a deal that included Tracy McGrady. After spending two and a half years in Houston, he was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2012 in the deal that saw the Rockets acquire star James Harden.
The move didn't work out for either Martin or OKC and he joined the Timberwolves as a free agent in 2013.
Over the course of his 12-year career, Martin will be remembered for being one of the most efficient scorers and had a respectable career average of 18 points per game.
