Three days after being released by the Hawks, Cartier Martin has found a new job. The Bulls have signed Martin to a 10-day contract, the team announced today in a press release.
Martin, 29, spent parts of four seasons with the Wizards prior to hooking on with the Hawks, appearing in 118 total games for Washington. In 25 contests with Atlanta this season, Martin averaged 6.6 PPG and 2.0 RPG while shooting a career-best 40.5% on three-pointers.
The Bulls had a two-week window after completing their trade of Luol Deng to add another body and increase their player count to 13, the minimum roster count allowed by the NBA. The Deng deal dipped Chicago slightly below the luxury tax, giving the team little room to add players. So unless the Bulls find another cost-cutting trade, we shouldn’t expect them to fill those last two open roster spots.
