Every so often, I see a comment on here wondering why the Washington Wizards don't bring Cartier Martin back. For those of you who write those comments, today appears to be a happy day. SBN colleague Scott Schroeder of Ridiculous Upside is reporting that the Wizards will sign Martin to a 10-day contract.
Cartier Martin is expected to sign with the Wizards, according to a league source, after playing 52 games with the team last season. Martin decided to play in China while the NBA lockout situation was being sorted out, but returned to the Iowa Energy earlier this month.
Martin averaged four points and 1.4 rebounds per game last year in 52 games with the Wizards. His most memorable moment with the team was this buzzer beater to send a November 2010 game against the Philadelphia 76ers into overtime. The Wizards eventually won that game.
To make room for Martin on the roster, the Wizards will let go of Edwin Ubiles, Schroeder reports. Ubiles scored a total of 14 points in 52 games in four games with the Wizards.
