Martell Webster has been waived by the Minnesota Timberwolves, league sources tell Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Webster averaged a three-year low 6.9 points in 24.3 minutes per game last season.

Webster will head to the waiver wire, where any team can pick him up for his remaining contract within 48 hours. If he clears waivers, he will hit the free agent market as an unrestricted free agent. Minnesota apparently feels Webster wasn't worth the $5.7 million he was scheduled to receive during the 2012-13 season.
Webster could still be a valuable depth piece, albeit at a reduced price. The 6'7 small forward is a career 41 percent shooter, 37 percent from beyond the 3-point arc.
