"Martell brings a combination of versatility and shooting in addition to his experience," Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld said in a statement. "Adding him to the roster provides us with another solid veteran presence and gives us flexibility with our lineups at both the shooting guard and small forward positions."

Webster, 25, has a career average of 8.4 points and 3.2 rebounds per game, while shooting .374 from three-point range in 394 games. He has played for the Portland Trail Blazers and Minnesota Timberwolves.
