HoopsHype Cartier Martin rumors

March 2, 2014 Updates

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.

Martin said he had several choices on the table from NBA teams but thought he could best be used by the Bulls. “Hard-nosed team,’’ Martin said. “I know coach Thibs [Tom Thibodeau] is very tough on guys here and these guys are a very good defensive team. But at the same time, they need to score the ball as well, so I feel like it’s a great fit for me.’’ Chicago Sun-Times
