Matthew Brian "Matt" Othick (born March 16, 1969) is a retired American professional basketball player and an independent film producer.
Born in Clovis, New Mexico, Othick played basketball at the University of Arizona from 1989 to 1992. He went on to brief stint with the NBA's San Antonio Spurs in 1992, playing four games. A 6'2" (1.88 m) 165 lb (75 kg) point guard, he went on to play with the Yakima Sun Kings in the CBA in 1998.
In 2006, Othick was part of group developing a film based on the life of his former high school and college teammate, the late Bison Dele (then known as Brian Williams), who presumably died during a boat trip in 2002. With his brother, Trent, Othick helped finance the Magnolia Pictures film Yonkers Joe, on which he is listed as an executive producer.
