UPDATE: It's for the veteran's minimum, according to Michael Lee.

(SB Nation D.C.) Cartier Martin has bounced between NBA teams, the D-League, Italy, Turkey and China during his professional basketball career, but he appears to have finally found a landing spot in the NBA. The Washington Wizards, who Martin has played for off-and-on over the last three years, was signed by the team on Thursday. They announced the deal in a press release and did not disclose the terms of the contract.

General manager Ernie Grunfeld spoke about why the team re-signed Martin and what he brings to the table.

"Cartier has been with our team for parts of the past three seasons and he has always made a positive contribution both on the court and in the locker room. In addition to his three-point shooting touch, he is a good defender and gives us another solid veteran to help solidify our bench."

Martin had a career high 9.3 points per game in the 2011-12 season, in which he played 17 games. He also shot a career best 44 percent from the floor.
