Fresh off of a career-high 34 point performance against the Suns, Wizards swingman Martell Webster says that he would like to stay in Washington next season, according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post (on Twitter).
“I would love to be here next year but this is a business and we’ll see what happens. I’m having an extraordinary time here," said the 26-year-old.
Webster will likely seek out a pay raise over his current salary of $1.6MM on a multi-year deal. His 34 point showing obviously isn't par for the course, but Webster has given the Wizards a career-best 11.5 PPG with 3.8 RPG and 1.9 APG this season. The former No. 6 overall pick would probably appreciate some stability as well, having played for three teams since 2009/10.
