Washington Wizards Re-Sign Cartier Martin

by July 13, 2012

The Washington Wizards have re-signed 6-7 swingman Cartier Martin. The deal is reportedly a one-year deal worth the veteran’s minimum—about $1 million for a player with his experience. NBA.com has the details: “‘Cartier has been with our team for parts of the past three seasons and he has always made a positive contribution both on the court and in the locker room,’ said Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld. ‘In addition to his three-point shooting touch, he is a good defender and gives us another solid veteran to help solidify our bench.’ Martin averaged a career-high 9.3 points to go along with 3.4 rebounds while shooting .440 from the field and .387 from three-point range in 17 games (two starts) with the Wizards last season. He was originally signed to consecutive 10-day contracts by the team (on March 28 and April 8, respectively) before being signed for the remainder of the season on April 18. Martin topped 20 points twice for the Wizards last season (including a career-high 22 points in an April 21 win at Miami) and scored in double figures six times.”
