Report: Blatche to Miami?

Report: Blatche to Miami?

While it was reported Marc Spears of Yahoo yesterday that Andray Blatche and the Nets had come to terms on a deal, Michael Lee of The Washington Post is reporting that the deal is not quite completed yet.

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.”

Meanwhile, Fred Kerber of the New York Post is reporting that a Nets deal for Blatche could be completed either late Thursday night or early Friday morning.

Needless to say, Blatche is going to weigh his options and choose the best fit for him, but it appears that with the Nets and Heat as the leading contenders, Blatche will have the opportunity to step into a limited role for a Eastern Conference playoff team.

If Blatche does join the Nets, adding him to a Brooklyn bench already consisting of Mirza Teletovic, MarShon Brooks and C.J. Watson suddenly would give the Nets one of the most offensively potent benches in the NBA.

Defense, however, could be an issue.
