Why should Wizards fans be happy at this signing?
A former Washington Wizard will re-sign with the team. Cartier Martin, who played 52 games with the Wizards last season will sign with the team according to a report on Ridiculous Upside. Martin played in China during the lockout and averaged 26.3 points and 4.7 rebounds in 30 games.
While playing for the NBA D-League's Iowa Energy, Martin scored 18.3 points per game in seven games, hitting 15 of 27 from three point range. Obviously the Wizards want him around to provide more of a scoring spark from the perimeter and Martin appears to be one of the hottest three-point shooters playing basketball right now.
His signing should be encouraging for Wizards fans as they now have a player that is familiar with many players on the current roster and has a great shooting touch. The Wizards made room for Martin by letting the 10-day contract of fellow D-Leaguer Edwin Ubiles expire. Ubiles is expected to rejoin the Dakota Wizards.
