The Washington Wizards are reportedly still deciding whether to cut Andray Blatche and remove him from the salary cap under the NBA's amnest clause, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge. Blatche is still owed $23 million on his current five-year, $35 million contract.
The Wizards could use the cap space to extend John Wall's contract and sign first-round pick Bradley Beal. They have six days to exercise the amnesty provision, however, and in the interim will explore other options with Blatche. The forward could either be traded immediately or be paid to stay out of the daily workings of the team if the Wizards need more time to work out a deal with another organization.
Whatever the Wizards choose to do, Blatche likely won't be involved with the team next season. He was benched last season after averaging 8.5 points and 5.8 rebounds in just 26 appearances.
