Matt Devlin (born April 2, 1969 in Syracuse, New York), also known as Matty D is a play-by-play TV announcer currently employed mainly by the Toronto Raptors of the NBA, having replaced Chuck Swirsky in 2008.

Devlin spent three years (2001-2004) as the lead play-by-play voice of the NBA's Memphis Grizzlies, and three years for the Charlotte Bobcats. He has also done play-by-play for the NBA on TNT, MLB on TBS, NFL on Fox, Major League Baseball on Fox, and football and men's college basketball for Big Ten Network. For many years, he has provided commentary during the NBA Playoffs in the early rounds of the Western Conference. He has also hosted pre-game and post-game shows for the New York Yankee games on the MSG Network in the late 1990s during their World Series championship years.

Devlin served as the play-by-play man for NBC Sports' coverage of Wrestling at the 2008 Summer Olympics.[1]

Although technically employed by the Raptors organization, during the offseason he has occasionally served as a fill-in play-by-play announcer for both of the Raptors' broadcast partners, TSN and Sportsnet. This has included play-by-play for the CFL on TSN and for Sportsnet's coverage of the Rogers Cup (both in 2012),[2] and for Sportsnet's Toronto Blue Jays coverage in 2013 2016 and 2017. In addition, in the fall of 2011, during the NBA lockout, Devlin hosted the pre-game and post-game shows for Toronto Maple Leafs games on Leafs TV. (The Raptors and the Leafs are both owned by Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, which in turn is primarily owned by the parent companies of TSN and Sportsnet.)

He once inexplicably exclaimed "Punjabi!" during a broadcast when Peja Stojakovic hit a three pointer. [3]
