Cartier Martin is the definition of a fringe NBA player — he’s been with six teams in seven seasons. He’s known as a shooter who plays the three, except last season he hit just 28 percent from the field and 18 percent from three. That’s not going to get it done (especially since he’s a mediocre defender). He had a fully guaranteed contract for this season but the Pistons cut him anyway.
Martin had gone to the D-League to find his way back to the NBA, but that road just got a lot longer, via Chris Reichert of Upside and Motor.
Bill Belichick would be proud of how vague the injury description and timeline is, but this is not good for Martin, who had a long road back in the first place.
