It’s been clear for a while that Andray Blatche wasn’t going to develop into the player the Washington Wizards hoped he would be. He started showing some promise a couple years ago, but after this season, his stock has bottomed out.
The Wizards have the option of using their one-time amnesty on Blatche and getting his $7 million off their payroll for next year. Blatche would still get paid but the Wizards wouldn’t have to take such a big hit to their salary cap.
Obviously, the amnesty isn’t ideal and the Wizards best option is to trade Blatche at this point, but that looks highly improbable. I’m not sure what kind of pitch you use to try to sell a team on a guy that you cut because he was fat and out of shape.
Blatche’s whole career has been riddled with disappointment on the court and poor decisions off it. Even if the Wizards don’t amnesty him, they will reportedly cut him from the team and pay him his money to sit on his butt and do nothing. He’s that bad that they’d rather pa...

Amnesty week is here. NBA Teams who are looking to use the new amnesty clause to waive one of their players will have a week to do so. If you are unfamiliar with the details of the amnesty clause, ProBasketballTalk has a good article that explains how it works.

Since the Washington Wizards are currently only $2 million under the salary cap the team does not possess the ability to shop for a high profile free agent in the summer of 2012. This means that outside of the small moves Washington makes to fill out their roster the Wizards won’t be involved in any [...]
Saying Adam Morrison’s basketball career peaked in college is an understatement. He was a star at Gonzaga, co-player of the year, and it earned him the third overall pick in the 2006 Draft to the Charlotte Bobcats.
Since then, it’s only been bad news. Morrison sat out the 2007-08 season with an injury then he got traded to the Los Angeles Lakers where he barely ever saw the...
