The day before he agreed to remain with the Wizards, Martell Webster was at relative ease. He spoke briefly with Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld on Monday but left the negotiations up to his agent, Dan Fegan, and even took some time catch the new Superman movie, “Man of Steel,” at the Gallery Place theater next to Verizon Center. “No stress. No stress,” Webster said of his emotions during the free agent recruiting period in a telephone interview on Tuesday. “I’ve been blessed to play this game. I was never worried about basketball. I always knew that if I take care of what I need to take care of, things will fall into place. And they did.” Washington Post

“It’s a testament to hard work,” Webster said of the deal, which won’t be signed until the NBA’s moratorium on signings and trades ends on July 10. Washington Post

After Woj's report, Webster shared the good news with his Internet friends via the magic of Instagram video: ... which, yes, Martell, was a little weird. (And kind of disconcerting.) The matter at hand for Wizards fans now: Should they find four years and $22 million for Webster disconcerting, too? Yahoo! Sports
