Andray Blatche, the former Washington Wizards forward that was the subject of so much cyber-ink over the past several years before being released, appears close to a contract with a new team. Multiple reports, including Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears, suggest that Blatche has signed a one-year, non-guaranteed deal with the Brooklyn Nets. He'd get invited to training camp, and the Nets would owe him nothing if they let him go.

However, Michael Lee of the Washington Post reports that Blatche still has not ruled out signing with the Miami Heat.

But according to two sources close to Blatche, the 6-foot-11 forward has yet to make a decision and is also considering an offer from the Miami Heat. One person close to Blatche said, "Nothing is finalized."

If Blatche does indeed sign with the Nets, he'd be fighting for backup minutes behind Brook Lopez and Kris Humphries. The Nets also have Mirza Teletovic and Reggie Evans, but they don't really have a true backup center. Blatche is probably more of a hybrid 4/5 at this stage of his career, but I always felt like his best chance to stay in the league was to play more as a 5 against bigger players. The Nets could offer that kind of opportunity for him.
