Wizards Resign Webster (4yr/22mil)
Looks like he'll be staying in Washington.
waste of money
4th year partially guaranteed
I like Webster but every year there seems to be a guy or two who can be picked up as a solid wing player who provides adequate defense and some good shooting. Even three years is too much imo but can understand why they'd want to sign him.
I thought Webster was actually pretty good last year - he was good defensively and an efficient shooter offensively.
He's only 26 years old, so I don't think he'll be a nuicance in 3 years, if he can stay motivated and play hard - he'll bea valuable piece for the Wizards.
Welp, that makes Chase Budinger a little more expensive to keep in Minnesota.
He can shoot the 3 and play some defense will otter porter become a starter and Webster and Ariza off the bench
The Wizards are trying to solidify a solid roster, but they overpaid for Webster. Giving him a multiyear contract wasn't a bad idea considering his youth and improvement last season, but I think they could have found a little bit better value elsewhere with the money that they will owe him.
If he's healthy and continues to shoot lightouts from 3, i don't see why this is a bad deal. He gives Wall another shooter, plays his role, good locker room guy etc. His best stretch last year was after Walls return. 15 PPG, 44FG%, 39 3%,4RPG, 2APG in March. He also shot 56% from 3 in Feb.
wow did they forgot they just drafted otto?
Martell can shoot from deep and is a solid defender. He can be brought in off the bench to hit some shots and defend his man. Otto hasnt played a game yet so we dont know how good he will be, and Martell may start while Otto finds his way.
I think he was a good signing but not for the price. They should have been able to keep him for 12million. He plays good with john wall and you never ha e enough shooting. The amount they gave him might be a way to get future free agents I interested in Washington. If they'll pay Webster 22 million then players have to consider them.
