Martin was waived by the Pistons on Friday. Martin appeared in only 23 games last season, averaging 1.6 points, 0.9 rebounds and 0.5 assists in just under nine minutes per game. The Pistons also waived Jordan Bachynski and Adonis Thomas on Friday, meaning they'll have to make one more subtraction before the start of the regular season.
Pistons forward Cartier Martin is still wearing a brace to protect his sprained right wrist, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.

It's uncertain if he'll be able to heal up in time to make a serious run at an opening-night roster spot with the Pistons.
Martin missed his second straight preseason game Thursday due to a right wrist injury, MLive.com's Aaron McCann reports. Martin is one of several players in contention for the 15th and final spot on the Pistons' roster, so he'll likely need to get back on the court quickly in order to demonstrate to the coaching staff that he's the most qualified man for the job. The 30-year-old appeared in 23 games for Detroit last season, averaging 1.6 points and 0.9 rebounds in 8.6 minutes per game.
Guard/forward Cartier Martin filed notice to the Pistons that he is exercising his $1.27 million option, according to RealGM.com. He filed his notice about a week ago. Martin only appeared in 23 games during this past season and averaged 1.6 points and 0.9 rebounds.
