Heat and Spurs interested in Blatche

Andray Blatche has a lot of talent and averaged 16.5 points and 8.5 rebounds two years ago with thw Wizards. The problem has been his attitude and work ethic.

According to ESPN’s Marc Stein the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs are among teams interested in free agent power forward Andray Blatche. The Washington Wizards used their amnesty provision last month to release him. The amnesty provision allows a player to be released and not count against the salary cap or luxury tax but he must be paid his full next year’s salary.

Because he will still be paid the $7.1 million he is owned under his contract Blatche may be willing to play for a championship contender for a veteran minimum.

Blatche definitely has loads of talent on the basketball court. He only played 26 games last season and averaged just 8.5 points and 5.8 rebounds but in the 2010-2011 season he put up career-highs with 16.8 points and 8.3 rebounds in 33.9 minutes per game.

Blatche’s problem has been his attitude and work ethic, which led to Wizards coach Randy Wittman shutting him down last season because he was out of shape, but with the motivation of playing for a championship contender he might get the spark he needs to get back on track.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
