Smart move or dumb one?

He is 26 and injury free. If NOBODY has offered him even the minimum there MUST be some red flags.

It doesnt really matter. If he doesn't help the team, he will get cut.

So...lottery next year?

Eddy Curry and Andray Blatche would make the most numbskull frontcourt duo in the history of the NBA. Blatche has all the tools to be an all-star and game changer, but it's never going to happen because he thinks he's already there. Uncoachable.

I'm just in this thread waiting for DoMeFavors to give their analysis on him. :D

Time to see another Net thread go past 25 pages. Get your popcorn ready.

Blatche has size and talent. At a non-guaranteed minimum contract where can you go wrong in seeing if he's matured even just a little?

He would be a nice player to have coming off the bench. Plus he's young.

The Nets are a veteran team with a veteran coach. They dont have any head cases on the team. Blatche would be the first. That's why I'm ok with bringing him on.

I wouldn't want to risk my lockerroom cohesion by bringing in a guy like Blatche, especially since Humphries and Lopez are both healthy. So the potential payoff is significantly less than the possible headaches. If someone goes down to injury midseason and a playoff run was on the line, I might consider it then.

I think a change of scenery could help the guy. Avery is a very hands on coach and Blatche seems to have regret some of his past decisions. I don't think its a terrible idea if he was signed to the Nets. Worst case he provides some scoring off the bench.

Blatche was amnestied but he has 3 years left, so right now instead of being a free agent he should be in the league. So your looking at a very good player might be playing for the Nets for the vet min.

Blatche like it or not is one of the most skilled big men in the league.

If Nets get Blatche this puts them over the top no question, Vets will settle Blatche down.

evans, watson, brooks, bogans, curry, greene, blatche

I think your lockerroom is safe with Wade and Lebron. Is it the same with D-Will and Joe Johnson? Deron didn't exactly control his team in Utah.

What risk? The contract they may offer is rumored to be non-guaranteed - meaning that if he starts anything you cut him loose and lose nothing. I actually hope the Nets don't sign him because I want my Wolves to give him a chance.

The risk is that he comes in, gives 10mpg and puts up points. Not within the team offense, not listening to the coach and not playing D. Will Avery be able to pull the plug on a player wrecking his lockerroom and undermining his authority, or will he be overridden by an exec who thinks that PPG is the best way to evaluate a player?

Don't get me wrong, I wish Andray the best, and I'd be glad to see him grow up and play like a man. But I see a dozen ways this could go sideways on them. The Wiz are paying him $27 million to go away because they wanted a lockerroom of professionals. What does that tell you?

No other team is interested in him and he was let go by the wizards....The WIZARDS. Not sure how you are missing this. It has 0 to do with him being on the Nets but I love how when Players go to the Knicks/Nets they auto hit super star mode. Its like those Jerseys give super magical powers.

Would be a great pickup for them, they need a big off the bench. IMO Avery would whip him in to shape. Not to mention he'd be playing with some well seasoned vets so I'm sure his attitude would be in check. Best case- he instantly becomes one of the best bigs coming off the bench. Worst case- he acts up and gets cut almost immediately. A low risk, high reward situation if you ask me.

The Wiz have a ton of issues so I don't know that them paying him to go away should be taken as him being that bad. Realize that this was a team led by Gilbert Arenas master of "pranks" (including but not limited to: pooping in Blatche's shoe and bring guns to the arena). It was important for both the Wiz and Blatche that he move on.

The risk with Blatche is his maturity. The reward is much higher. This risk is highly moderated by the non-guaranteed nature of the contract and the assumption that management has sense enough to listen to their coach if he says the guy needs to be dropped. Michael Beasley gets 2nd and 3rd chances, why not Andray Blatche?

Michael Beasley gets 2nd and 3rd chances, why not Andray Blatche?

I never assume that management will do the right thing. History shows that guys who put points on the board don't get cut, because people overrate scorers and don't pay attention to HOW they score. If he puts up 10ppg on 35% shooting, people will say he's a steal at vet's minimum and you'd be crazy to cut him.

And once he's signed, the decision makers have a vested interest in saying he succeeded even if he doesn't, because otherwise they'd be admitting they made a mistake. It's the sunk cost fallacy.

Now this is all theoretical from a non-Nets fan. I don't even know who's in Brooklyn's management structure, let alone how they've made decisions in the past. They could be reasonable, rational thinkers who know when to cut their losses. But I'd bet they're pretty normal people who fall prey to normal decision making errors.

JasonJohnHorn
09-02-2012, 09:50 AM
I know he had some maturity issues in the past, and that he seemed to take a step back last season, but he's still young and has potential and I think he's worth the risk if all you're putting out if the vet min. Worst case scenario is he plays awful and gets no minutes, best case scenario, you have a quality back up coming off the bench.

Smart move. A lot smarter than working out Curry. lol

WTH, we are talking about a bench player here, if they sign him it's for vets min, and if he's out of shape they will cut him, if he's not, then he'll back up Lopez.

If he can play center than he would be well worth the risk. The Nets need some size and Blatche is very skilled. But it only makes sense if he can give 10-15 minutes at center since I'd much rather give power forward minutes to Teletovic and Evans.

He can play both the power forward and center positions, and he's shown he has the talent to produce. Why not give him a non-guaranteed contract? If Zach Randolph can change, anyone can. If Blatche really tries on and off the court, I could see him competing with Humphries for the starting spot.

Lopez was a competent per minute rebounder his rookie year. As he's taking more of the offensive load, his rebounding has regressed, as well as his shooting %.

He can play both the power forward and center positions, and he's shown he has the talent to produce. Why not give him a non-guaranteed contract? If Zach Randolph can change, anyone can. If Blatche really tries on and off the court, I could see him competing with Humphries for the starting spot.

Doubt he could compete for the starting spot. If anything, it's b/c of Lopez. They need to have a great rebounding PF to play alongside Lopez in the front court. Maybe if Lopez remembers how to rebound, then a hard-working blatche could fight with Humphries.

llullz, you can't teach rebounding, it's all passion, effort and anticipation skills and paint position awareness. He lacks all of that.

what u cant teach is brook lopez offensive skill set... seriously top 3 best offensive big men in the game right now

If they can get him cheap, why not? Dude has talent at the 4 position. Maturity is his major issue thats holding him back

I like the move to be honest, but only if Avery can coach him to at least a little maturity. Blatche is incredibly skilled. He's just an idiot. Low-risk, high reward.

Playing on an immature Wizards team with 3 different coaches the past 3 years doesn't help.

Blatche has the physical talent to be an NBA Allstar but he's too busy being 12 year old child to improve on his game.

Wrong.

Blatche was the primary character problem on the Wizards team to go along with his immaturity.

Unfortunately, he came into one of the worst locker rooms for a young, immature player to come into out of HS at that and it set him on a path for failure.
