Bulls sign Cartier Martin to a 10-day contract

The tank stops here!

Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE

Cartier Martin is your newest Bull. The six-year veteran signed a 10-day contract on Friday, moving Chicago's roster to 13 players. The Bulls will be the fifth team of Martin's career. He most recently played for the Atlanta Hawks, appearing in 25 games this season and starting two. Before that, Martin spent parts of four seasons in Washington where he was mostly a shooter off the bench.

That's what Martin does: shoots threes. He's a career 38.5 percent shooting from deep on 486 career attempts. At 6'7, 220 lbs., he has good size and can move between each position on the wing.

Of course, there's a reason Martin is your prototypical NBA journeyman. He's already 29 years old and has only been something close to a full-time player in the lockout-shortened season of 2010-2011 when he appeared in 52 games.

I do wish the Bulls would have dug a little harder here instead of just opting for a retread. There are plenty of guys in the D-League or Europe who could potentially show something and stick around next season, but the Bulls weren't interested in going that route. Remember Andrew Goudelock? He's playing in a Russia right now, and looked good for the SummerBulls.

Ah, well. Cartier Martin! Jeez, just get this dumb season over with already.
