Cartier Martin actually has two-year contract with player option

Shams Charania of RealGM:

Cartier Martin’s worked for security in NBA, and his Pistons deal is termed with a player option for a second season, source tells RealGM.

Good for Martin. He’s a hard-worker and deserves a little security.

According to Spotrac, this is Carter’s 18th NBA contract. It’s his first multi-year deal.

But that also makes his contract – originally reported to be for one year – a little less desirable for the Pistons. If Martin fells below expectations, he’ll opt in and weigh on Detroit’s cap in 2015-16. If he exceeds expectations, he’ll opt out and seek more money.

Considering Martin is still likely on a minimum or near-minimum deal, this isn’t anything to get too worked up about, but it does remove a little flexibility from the Pistons.
