Kate Martin’s New Nickname Turning Heads After Matchup With Diana Taurasi

Las Vegas Aces rookie Kate Martin has been turning heads since she entered the league. Martin has been one of the top contributing rookies on both ends of the floor, despite being picked out of the stands in the 2024 WNBA draft. 

She’s gone from a surprise first-round draft pick to an impact player on a championship roster.

In a previous postgame interview, Aces star Kelsey Plum gave Martin a nickname that has since lived on with the Iowa Hawkeyes product.

Martin entered the game late in the first quarter against the Phoenix Mercury on Tuesday and the announcers referred to her as “Kate Money Martin.”

Plum’s label for the rookie may just stick with Martin for the rest of her career.
