Long after the Wizards’ postseason run ended, Martell Webster remained at Verizon Center doing individual work to get lighter and be ready for 2015-16. His third season was pretty much a lost one as a third back surgery kept him out until January, but if he’s able to contribute at all it might have to come playing as a stretch four.

Webster played some when he began his career with the Portland Trail Blazers and the Wizards have floated the  possibility of using him there when — if? — he can work his way back onto the court.

Webster has to get out of the gate quickly, and avoid re-injury when training camp starts next month, to prove to coach Randy Wittman he indeed can be a stretch-four option.
