Hearing that Martell Webster auditioned this week for Wizards and that Wiz are on short list of teams sharpshooter is likely to sign with— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) August 22, 2012
Webster appeared in 47 games for the Minnesota Timberwolves -- starting 26 of them -- during the lockout-shortened 2011-2012 campaign and averaged 6.9 points and 3.6 rebounds in 24 minutes of action on the floor. He also shot 42 percent from the field and 34 percent from beyond the three-point line.
His addition to the Wizards would give the team a legitimate threat from long range was Webster is a career 37 percent shooter from long range.
