Martell Webster works out for, could end up with Wizards

Trevor Ariza will be the starting swingman for the Washington Wizards, but the team is looking at adding some depth there. Apparently.

The Wizards worked out free agent Martell Webster and he could sign with them, reports Michael Lee of the Washington Post. Or, they could add one of the other veterans they are considering.

Free agent small forward Martell Webster worked out for the Wizards at Verizon Center this week, according to two sources with knowledge of the situation. The former No. 6 pick of the NBA draft in 2005, Webster has averaged 8.4 points and shot 37.4 percent from beyond three-point range throughout his career in Portland and Minnesota…

Anthony Tolliver has been in the mix for some time, but the team also has interest in free agents Michael Redd, Terrence Williams and Shawne Williams.

Look for Washington to add one of those guys. Whoever they sign it will be a one-year (any second year likely a team option) for the league minimum. The Wizards have 13 guys locked in on the roster. They also are still about $3 million under the salary cap.

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
