Cartier Martin. This is the non-white Steve Novak candidate. Martin has already been with the Wizards for parts of three seasons, and he's on a veteran's minimum deal for this year. The 27-year-old guard shoots a career 37 percent from long-range, but takes those threes with great frequency (6.9 per 36 last season, 5.8 for his career). The Wizards desperately need shooting, and Martin is the best candidate to offer it up. If the shots continue to go down, Randy Wittmann needs to continue putting Martin in the game.
Probably a long shot, but #wizards are among a handful of teams that have expressed interest in Josh Childress, according to a source.
I seriously doubt that the Washington Wizards would ever go into the luxury tax in the out-years.

Earl Calloway, Kim Tillie, Mike Scott and Shavlik Randolph (who is probably the biggest "maybe" amongst these names) are your new roster potentials.
Considering the hype he's gotten the past few weeks, Beal's one year at Florida wasn't really that impressive, but all the tools are there, and just about everyone seems to agree that he's got every intangible you could ask for in a19-year-old. His shooting is what got him drafted this high, but he can also attack the rim off the pump fake and be a scorer. So he's kind of like MKG -- you don't know exactly what it's going to look like when things come together for him, but you have the sense it's going to be pretty great regardless.
"I don't want to be in the lottery anymore," Leonsis said Thursday at the Wizards 2012 NBA Draft party. "I would find that unacceptable."
