Andray Blatche is reportedly on the Nets' radar with the team watching him workout in Houston.
The former Washington Wizards forward is on the free-agent market and currently working out in Houston for numerous NBA teams in hopes of catching on somewhere. Brooklyn is one of those teams, with head coach Avery Johnson reportedly meeting with the 6'11 big man sometime over the past weekend.
Blatche would be an interesting fit on a team that is loaded with backcourt talent. The 49th pick of the 2005 draft, Blatche has shown flashes of athletic brilliance only to be offset by a lack of focus and will at times.
For the Nets, it might be a good move to pick Blatche up, considering the Wizards are paying his salary after using the amnesty clause on him this summer. In all likelihood, the 26-year-old would sign for or near the veteran's minimum.
