Martin McBride "Marty" Conlon (born January 19, 1968) is a former professional basketball player whose career in the National Basketball Association lasted from 1992 through 2000. Conlon started his basketball career at Archbishop Stepinac High School in White Plains, NY. His earliest fame came in his freshman year in college when he played on the Providence College team that went to the Final Four. His coach that year was Rick Pitino. His final years in the NBA, he was with the Miami Heat and was coached by Pat Riley.

Conlon played for the Seattle SuperSonics, the Sacramento Kings, the Charlotte Hornets, the Washington Bullets, the Milwaukee Bucks, the Boston Celtics, the Miami Heat, and the Los Angeles Clippers. The height of both his career and fame came in Milwaukee. His true talent, however, was rebounding.

After a long career, he signed his last contract with the Clippers. After his NBA career came to an end, he continued to play basketball professionally in Europe, where he played in Italy, Greece, Spain and Ireland where he was the captain of the Irish National Team.

He currently works for NBA International and lives in New York City.
