When reports came out the amnestied Wizard Andray Blatche had reached a deal with the Nets, his camp came back quickly with “there is nothing signed yet” and how the Heat might still be in the running.
Congrats to @drayblatche for signing with the @brooklynnets!
Feel free to take that with all the salt you want, but if the guy running your workouts is congratulating you…
It’s not rocket science. Even if Blatche reached some agreement with the Nets it is smart to keep options open until the papers are finalized and signed. So, if you can hint other teams are interested it’s the smart thing to do. Whether or not they really are.
The Brooklyn offer is for the minimum and is apparently not guaranteed. But that may be all Blatche can get at this point.
