Wizards announce Maynor, Temple, Webster signings

Associated Press  |  Last updated July 10, 2013
The Washington Wizards added free agent Eric Maynor on Wednesday and re-signed Garrett Temple for backcourt depth behind John Wall and Bradley Beal. Maynor played 64 games with Oklahoma City and Portland last season, averaging 4.5 points and 2.8 assists. ''He will bring stability and experience in that role and add leadership and character off the floor,'' Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld said. Maynor said he was impressed by the Wizards' play with a healthy Wall. ''Just knowing that we got a bunch of young guys, talented,'' he said. Signed originally by the Wizards on Christmas out of the NBA Developmental League, Temple averaged 5.1 points and 2.3 assists in 51 games last season, including 36 starts. ''His defensive ability, toughness and team-first attitude make him an excellent fit in our system,'' Grunfeld said. Temple, who spent time with five NBA teams before joining the Wizards, signed a one-year deal for the veteran minimum - the first guaranteed contract for the 27-year-old player. ''It feels good. Definitely not satisfied, though,'' Temple said. ''I think we have a really good chance to make a run for the playoffs this year.'' The Wizards also announced the re-signing of forward Martell Webster. Maynor, Temple, and Webster all agreed to their deals last week but couldn't sign them until Wednesday under NBA free agency rules.
