The NBA off-season is nearly over as players and coaches are beginning preparations for the start of training camp, but that doesn't mean there still isn't help available through the free agent market and for teams like Brooklyn that are still looking to add depth, the next couple weeks could see some roster movement.
The latest rumor comes from the New York Times as reporter Howard Beck has indicated that Brooklyn Nets head coach Avery Johnson is headed to speak with Andray Blatche this weekend. The 26-year-old was cut from Washington after some on and off court issues, but his talent is unquestionable and adding the center could give the Nets some valuable depth to their front-court for the upcoming basketball season.
Blatche averaged over 16 points and eight rebounds just two years ago and has a big strong body that can handle the physical play in the league, but maturity issues were raised after his antics this past NBA season and the former second round draft pick is now looking for a new home.
The Nets are trying to become a relevant force in the Eastern Conference and with Deron Williams resigning and the trade for Joe Johnson, this team could battle for home court playoff series, but depth is an issue and adding a player like Blatche could make this a dark horse team in the 2012-13 season.
