But if you’re going to argue the league should value 3-and-D guys more highly — and I have — then you can’t slam this deal, even if Webster probably tops out as a slightly above-average defender. He doesn’t quite have the bulk to defend the league’s behemoth wings, he can have some quickness issues against 2-guards, and you can spot him being inattentive away from the ball. But he manages fine on a night-to-night basis, and he can play either wing position (though he’s played mostly small forward in the NBA). Almost every core Wiz lineup featuring Webster at small forward (i.e., lineups that did not include the Garrett Temples of the world) had a positive scoring margin, and the Wizards blew the league away with John Wall, Bradley Beal, and Webster on the floor together. The Wiz want to make the playoffs, and Webster will help while allowing the Wiz to ease Otto Porter into the NBA. This might be an overpay, with Beal and Porter looming as the team’s future core, but if Webster shoots around 40 percent from deep again, it’s not a damaging one — even if the Wiz used the full mid-level exception here.

Grantland.

Martell's not satisfied

"I know what I don’t want to feel again. I know that’s the truth. That’s a catalyst for hard work. And I’ll continue to keep that burning image and feeling in my mind. So I have something to work off of," Webster said. "I’m not satisfied. I’m comfortable, but I’m not satisfied. Satisfaction comes from my goals and the bar that I raised, not only for myself but for my teammates. So no satisfaction yet."

That's what he told Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

Wiz sign Martell to 4-year, $22 million deal

Warriors also pursuing Martell?

Canzano used to cover Webster in Portland, so he has some connections. The Warriors can only offer Webster the taxpayer mid-level exception starting at $3.18 million, and they already have Harrison Barnes and Brandon Rush at Webster's position, so I'm surprised they're supposedly interested.

Webster's back in D.C. for physical therapy

"Right now I just want to come here and get a grasp of what it's going to take to get me back to where I want be," Webster said. "My goal is to come in training camp for whatever team I'm playing for in shape. The fact that these guys are so hands on in the situation I'm in now let's me know how much that they want me back here, which is amazing. "Like I said before, I just want to be wanted and be valued for what I bring to the table."

Martell Webster explains to Ben Standig that he's not back in D.C. specifically to meet with the Wizards, but rather to undergo physical therapy following hernia surgery. I'm guessing Martell will meet with Ernie Grunfeld while he's here, though.
