Cartier Martin Rumors

All NBA Players

Butler took 4.4 3-point shots in 25 minutes a game last season and made 39.4 percent of them, joining Augustin and shooting guards Jodie Meeks and Cartier Martin as free-agent signees who figure to transform the Pistons’ 3-point shooting threat from meek to potent. “He has a competitive nature to him that drives him at this point,” Pistons general manager Jeff Bower said. “He’s been on good teams. He’s seen and experienced what they’re all about. He sees this as an opportunity to compete, to play a role of significance within a team that has the potential to grow and to create change.”

The Pistons, who entered the off-season with $13.5 million in salary-cap space, reached agreements with Lakers shooting guard Jodie Meeks and Hawks swingman Cartier Martin on Tuesday, according to a person familiar with the situation. Yahoo Sports was the first to break the news and added that Meeks’ deal is worth $19.5 million over three years. “Had a great time in L.A. and loved every moment,” Meeks said in a text to ESPNLosAngeles.com. “Looking forward to moving forward with my career in Detroit! Excited!”
So far, 29 10-day contracts have been signed this season, and seven were then signed to a second 10-day contract. Three players – Leandro Barbosa in Phoenix, Chris Johnson in Boston and Cartier Martin in Atlanta — have been signed for the remainder of the season after first signing on with a 10-day contract. More than ever, however, teams must be judicious in which players they sign. If a player performs so well on a 10-day contract, it might be difficult to sign him to favorable long-term deal.
The Atlanta Hawks signed forward Cartier Martin to a second 10-day contract, it was announced today by President of Basketball Operations/General Manager Danny Ferry. Martin has appeared in 27 games (two starts) with the Hawks this season, averaging 6.6 points and 2.0 rebounds in 17.0 minutes (.415 3FG%, .821 FT%). He has also played in six contests this year with the Chicago Bulls, and averaged 2.5 points in 7.9 minutes (.625 FG%, .600 3FG%).

The Atlanta Hawks signed forward Cartier Martin to a 10-day contract, it was announced today by President of Basketball Operations/General Manager Danny Ferry. Martin will be active for tonight’s game against Minnesota at Philips Arena. Martin, a 6-foot-7, 220-pound forward, appeared in 25 games (two starts) with the Hawks earlier this season, averaging 6.6 points and 2.0 rebounds in 17.5 minutes (.405 3FG%, .821 FT%).
Thibodeau indicated that he would like forward Cartier Martin, recently signed to a second 10-day contract, to be signed for the rest of the season. ‘‘We’re hopeful that’ll be the case,’’ Thibodeau said. ‘‘Very professional. Brings a lot every day to practice, preparation. And he’s always ready. So you feel comfortable if you have an injury or foul trouble, you can throw him out there and he’s going to do his job.’’
