Wizards plan to target re-signing Martell Webster

Martell Webster, at age 26, had his best season as a pro — 11.4 points a game on 44.2 percent shooting overall and 42.2 percent from three, 3.9 rebounds a game, all those numbers were career highs or close to it.

The swingman who was a Wizards starter is a free agent this summer and the way he played is going to get him a nice contract.

The Wizards want that to be with them, they are targeting him to be re-signed, reports the Washington Post.

Starting small forward Martell Webster will be an unrestricted free agent this summer and bringing him back will be one the Wizards’ priorities, according to sources with knowledge of the Wizards’ plans.

The Wizards are locked basically into the same roster next season, unless they can find a trading partner for Emeka Okafor or Nene (or Trevor Ariza). They are going to re-sign John Wall to a large contract, one that will make some fans shake their head but could be a steal if he stays healthy and hits jumpers.

Webster proved to be a solid fit this season and he should be at a fair price. The Wizards should be able to keep him.

What will be interesting is how good Washington will be if they can just keep everyone healthy.
