If he remains healthy, Webster should be a dynamic three-point threat for a Wizards team that had the third-worst three-point percentage, 32%, in the NBA last year. Webster shot 42% from downtown during his first year with the Minnesota Timberwolves two seasons ago, but back surgeries prevented him from having another good campaign in Minnesota.
The Wolves bought out his contract and Webster found himself looking for a new home. He got one in D.C.
Before the 2012 NBA Draft, one of the biggest questions about the Washington Wizards offseason was how they would improve a team that completely lacked any perimeter scoring threats. Since then the organization has made a variety of moves to address this issue, Webster being the presumed final piece of the puzzle.
Drafting Bradley Beal, resigning Cartier Martin, and now adding Webster are moves intended to give the Wizards a nice complement of shooters to their arsenal of post players. If you hear Webster talk though, he considers himself more of an "all-around" player rather than just a three-point shooter.
All-around talents are always nice to come by, but if Webster considers himself to be that a player of that caliber he has a tough road ahead. He'll have to distinguish himself amongst the likes of Martin, Trevor Ariza, and Chris Singleton if he wants to receive a decent chunk of playing time from Randy Wittman.
Barring another move that would fill out their roster, Washington's offseason is most likely over. Training camp begins on October 2, more than a month away, so fans will have to wait a while until news regarding the look of the team surfaces. Until then, we can only speculate about how the Wizards will look in the upcoming season.
