Washington Wizards Re-Sign Cartier Martin

Cartier Martin has bounced between NBA teams, the D-League, Italy, Turkey and China during his professional basketball career, but he appears to have finally found a landing spot in the NBA. The Washington Wizards, who Martin has played for off-and-on over the last three years, was signed by the team on Thursday. They announced the deal in a press release and did not disclose the terms of the contract.

General manager Ernie Grunfeld spoke about why the team re-signed Martin and what he brings to the table.

"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. 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 had a career high 9.3 points per game in the 2011-12 season, in which he played 17 games. He also shot a career best 44 percent from the floor.

NBA Free Agency 2012: Wizards Interested In Bringing Back Cartier Martin, According To Report

Cartier Martin has been a perfectly serviceable bench player for the Washington Wizards, with whom he's spent parts of the previous three seasons. In 17 games in D.C. in 2011-12, Martin averaged 9.3 points and 3.4 rebounds per game while shooting 38.7 percent from beyond the arc (29-for-75).

That's the sort of profile that will have at least one NBA team interested in you, and according to Ben Standig of, no less then three teams, including the Wizards, have an interest in retaining Martin for the 2012-13 season.

Other NBA teams inquiring about Martin's availability include the San Antonio Spurs and Orlando Magic. While the negotiation window opened on July 1, contracts cannot be signed until July 11.

There is also the matter of available minutes in Washington at the small forward and wing guard positions.

Ariza played 32 minutes a game last season for the Hornets. Chris Singleton, one of the Wizards two 2011 first-round picks, played in all 66 games as a rookie during the truncated 2011-12 campaign. Jan Vesely and Trevor Booker also figure to receive playing time at small forward.

Martin proved himself to be a valuable role player for the Wizards over the past three seasons, and there's no question that he would provide a valuable service to the organization going forward. Let's see if the Wizards do enough to keep him.
