Martell Webster To Consider Retirement At 30 After Final Three Years Of Contract

Martell Webster underwent his third back surgery in four years during the offseason and says he intends to retire once the final three years of his contract are up.

“I know this game is probably not going to be the healthiest thing for me if I try to stretch it out as much as a possibly can,” Webster said. “So I intend to really give everything I got for these last three years of my contract and probably walk away from this game so I can be healthy.”

Webster, 27, will be 30 years old when the four-year, $22 million contract he signed with Wizards last summer expires. Webster turned pro after high school so he is already entering his 10th NBA season.

“I’ve always wanted to retire young,” Webster said. “I love this game and I respect this game, but I only want to be in it as long as I can be effective and as long as I can feel comfortable.”
