Martyn "Moochie" Norris (born July 27, 1973) is an American former professional basketball player.
Norris, a journeyman, played collegiately at Odessa College (JC) (1992/93-1993/94), at Auburn University (1994/95) and at the University of West Florida (1995/96). He was drafted with 33rd overall pick (4th in second round) of the 1996 NBA draft by the Milwaukee Bucks. He did not play for Bucks and on 22 November 1996 was waived by them. On 12 December he signed as free agent with the Vancouver Grizzlies for whom he played until 30 December, when he was waived. After one season (1997/98) of break he returned to the NBA and played there until the 2005/06 season for the Seattle SuperSonics, Houston Rockets, New York Knicks and New Orleans Hornets.
Early on in his career, Norris dealt with insomnia which he has suffered from for many years. He was also noticeable for his large afro: Norris became one of the lesser-known NBA players to have his own bobblehead figurine (sporting a synthetic afro) made of him while he was with the Houston Rockets in 2002.
After the 2006 NBA season, Norris was placed on waivers by the New Orleans Hornets. He joined the Yakama Sun Kings of the Continental Basketball Association briefly in January 2007, played for Italian club Climamio Bologna from March to June of that year, and in November returned to the Sun Kings, where he led the league in assists.
