Mitch McCarron is an Australian professional basketball player for Melbourne United in the NBL and the Australian Boomers.
Born in Alice Springs, Mitch moved with his family to Brisbane then pursued his basketball career in the US college system. He would also go on to play in Spain and Slovenia, adjusting to new cultures and dynamics along the way.
He signed a two-year deal with the Cairns Taipans in his native Australia on 13 May 2016. After a stint with Petrol Olimpija following the 2017–18 NBL season, McCarron signed a three-year deal with Melbourne United on 8 June 2018.
Now well established in the NBL and representing his country with the Boomers, Mitch still has his next transition in the back of his mind - he has a university degree and works in a financial services firm between training sessions.
Mitch is also a board member with the Australian Basketball Players Association and has strong interests in coaching.
