Andray Blatche Signing: Brooklyn Nets Ink Forward

The Brooklyn Nets have signed former Washington Wizards forward Andray Blatche, general manager Billy King announced on Wednesday. The deal is believed to be a one-year, non-guaranteed contract that will pay Blatche slightly over $1.1 million if he is on the roster for the entire season.

The Wizards used the amnesty clause to release Blatche and the remaining three years and $23 million of his contract in July. Blatche had an up and down career in Washington, showing promise at times and frustrating play at others. The forward averaged career highs of 16.8 points and 8.2 rebounds per game during the 2010-11 season, but saw his numbers dip to 8.5 ppg and 5.8 rpg in only 26 games last year.

Blatche, a seven year veteran out of South Kent High School (South Kent, CT), brings the Nets roster to 14 players and offers them frontcourt depth behind Brook Lopez and Kris Humphries.
