Martell Webster

(age 27)

The 6-7 swingman plays for the Washington Wizards, after breaking into the NBA in 2005 with the Trail Blazers.

Webster, a No. 6 overall draft pick out of Seattle Prep, spent five seasons with Portland, with a short stint in the NBA Development League.

He signed a four-year, $20 million contract extension with the Blazers in October 2008, then missed all but five minutes of the 2008-09 season with an injured left foot.

He played three years with the Minnesota Timberwolves, before being waived and signing as a free agent with Washington in 2012.
