Andray Blatche Could Be On The Market
The Brooklyn Nets caught some grief when they decided to bring Andray Blatche into town during the offseason. During his time with the Washington Wizards, he showed undeniable talent, but also cemented himself as a bonehead.
Well, it has worked out great so far for both sides. Blatche is having a very good year for the Nets, averaging an impressive 10.7 points, 5.6 rebounds and 49.6% shooting in less than 20 minutes per game, with a PER over 22. When he’s on the floor, Blatche has been very good.
Apparently, that isn’t enough to stop the Nets from looking to deal him.
Via Fox Sports Ohio:
Brooklyn has placed forward Andray Blatche on the market, according to multiple sources. The Nets are looking for a draft pick in return. Portland, looking for ways to shore up its bench, might have an interest.
With the season he’s having, you have to believe there are a good amount of teams around the league who would entertain the idea of bringing Blatche into town. When he’s playing and behaving like he has this year, why wouldn’t you want him?
It’s tough to believe that the Nets are willing to give him up for a draft pick, as he’s been an important part of their bench.
