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.

Martin, who becomes a free agent at the end of the season, scored 16 points in a 120-99 loss at the New York Knicks earlier this week, making six of 12 shots, including four of 7 from three, in 20 minutes of play. He had a season-high 23 points in a 101-92 loss at the Golden State Warriors on March 23, making 8 of 13 shots, including six of nine threes, in 30 minutes. “At times, yeah,” Martin said about thinking of his future with three games left in the regular season. “Especially dealing with these year-to-year contracts. You always have a sense and think about security and the best position for you and where you’ll end up next season. I’m confident that I’ll still be playing. I got to stay healthy.” CSNWashington.com

The Washington Wizards held Kids Day over the weekend. To help promote Kids Day, they invited De’La, a Wizards Junior Reporter, in to interview some of the Wizards. She asked Martell Webster (“Marty”), Garrett Temple, Cartier Martin and John Wall about their shoe sizes and celebrity crushes. She even got John Wall to do the Dougie, but she had to do it with him. The results were adorable as the Washington players joked around and mostly just made her giggle the entire time. The Big Lead
