The Washington Wizards aren’t desperately in need of making any roster additions, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t searching through the remaining free agent pool to find a possible fit – financially and personnel-wise – with the team.
Free agent small forward Martell Webster worked out for the Wizards at Verizon Center this week, according to two sources with knowledge of the situation. The former No. 6 pick of the NBA draft in 2005, Webster has averaged 8.4 points and shot 37.4 percent from beyond three-point range throughout his career in Portland and Minnesota
Webster appeared in 47 games last season, starting in 26, and averaged 6.9 points and 3.6 rebounds. He shot a career-low 33.9 percent from long distance. Minnesota bought out Webster for $600,000 so that they could avoid paying him $5.7 million next season and use the available money to make an offer sheet to restricted free agent Nicolas Batum, who wound up returning to Portland.
