An Andray Blatche trade may still happen for the Washington Wizards. The Wizards have been shopping Blatche for a while now, suggesting that the team does not have a place on the roster to keep the big man around. He seems like a player that could benefit greatly by changing teams, especially because he has always looked like someone that could offer more than the Wizards have received from him.
According to the Washington Post, the Wizards are aggressively trying to trade him, meaning the team might even trade him at a discount. A guy that is almost seven feet tall and can average almost 10 rebounds per game is hard to find, so other teams may want to jump on this action. In just 28.5 minutes per game this season, Blatche has averaged 10.3 points and 7.1 rebounds per game, proving that he could become a double-double machine in the right system.
There are many playoff-bound teams that could use size, including the Los Angeles Lakers off the bench and the Miami Heat if they can acquire Blatche for an affordable price. Blatche is still just 25 years old, so he has some good years ahead of him in the league. He does have three more years on his current contract after the current season though, so that might become expensive for some franchises.
Do you think that a player like Andray Blatche could help out a contending team? Should the Washington Wizards try harder to hold on to Blatche?
