Martell Webster joins the Portland Trail Blazers for the 2005-06 season as the third player straight from high school taken in consecutive NBA Drafts for the Trail Blazers. The 6-7, 210-pound guard joins Portland via Seattle Prep in Washington, where he was one of 10 finalists for the Naismith Award, an honor that goes to nation's top high school senior. He was also selected as a member of the 2005 McDonald's All-America team and the Parade Magazine All-America first team. Webster originally committed to play at the University of Washington before declaring for the 2005 NBA Draft where he was selected sixth overall.

As the sixth pick, Webster became the Trail Blazers' highest pick since they took Kentucky's Sam Bowie as the No. 2 selection in the 1984 Draft. Webster's biggest influence in his life has been Beulah Walker, his great aunt, who raised him from the time he was three years old. Webster has a sister, Chi Chi, a brother, Bobby, and is the cousin of Dallas Mavericks point guard Jason Terry. The rookie will turn 19 on December 4.
