WASHINGTON – Martell Webster has agreed to a four-year, $22 million deal to stay with the Washington Wizards.

Webster, a former Seattle Prep standout, reached terms Tuesday. The contract can’t be signed until next Wednesday under free-agency rules.

Bringing back Webster, 26, was a high priority for the Wizards. The 6-foot-7 swingman averaged a career-high 11.4 points last season and was a respected locker-room leader.

Webster made $1.75 million last season, his first with the Wizards. He spent the previous two seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves after starting his pro career in Portland in 2005.

“It’s very reassuring,” Webster told The Washington Post. “I’m secure.”

Notes

• Free-agent power forward David West has agreed to a deal that will keep him with the Indiana Pacers for at least three more seasons, a source said.

• The Minnesota Timberwolves agreed to a four-year, $30 million deal with ex-Oklahoma City guard Kevin Martin, 30, and a three-year, $16 million deal to keep forward Chase Budinger, 25, according to two sources.

• A three-team trade will make J.J. Redick, previously with Milwaukee, and Jared Dudley, previously with Phoenix, new members of the Los Angeles Clippers, sources said.

Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler will go from the Clippers to Phoenix and Milwaukee will get two second-round draft picks.
