The Washington Wizards and guard-forward Martell Webster agreed on a four year deal this afternoon worth $22 million dollars.
Martell Webster has reached agreement on a four year deal with Washington, league source tells Y!
Webster, after stops in both Portland and Minnesota came to the Wizards last year where he experienced his best season. The cousin of fellow NBA-er Jason Terry averaged a career high 11.4 points and 4 rebounds a game, along with 2 assists and a near steal.
In addition to the solid offense, Webster also played above average defense which gave the former 6th overall pick a combined win share of 6.3, solid numbers for anybody averaging under 30 minutes a game.
Still, a four year deal is certainly pushing it for the Wizards as Webster, talented as he is, is a role player. The yearly average of just over $5 million dollars shouldn’t break the bank and is fair market value for Webster, but it was most likely requested by Webster the Wizards agree to the fourth year.
Webster’s fourth year has a partial guarantee.
