Default Nets agree to deal with Andray Blatche

Quote:
The Brooklyn Nets have agreed to a one-year, minimum deal with Andray Blatche.

Blatche was waived by the Washington Wizards via the amnesty clause in July.

Blatche told HoopsWorld on Wednesday that he had hoped to sign a contract within the next few days.

Free agent F Andray Blatche has agreed in principle to a 1-year contract paying the minimum with the Brooklyn Nets, a source told Y! Sports.
A minumum deal from a team with a handful of vets. Low risk insurance policy for Brooklyn. If he acts douchie, just send him home.

This is actually an amazing signing. If he can get his head right, he can provide a lot of help at the 4.

4&5 spots considering how out of shape he has been.

Surprised he didn't go to Miami, best possible chance for a title. The Nets....definitely talented, I'm not sure the personalities will mix well. Another team to watch as the season unfolds....entertainment at it's best

He was amnestied, so I think he has two contracts this year.

Smart move by the Nets, I think he can turn around enough to warrant that contract at the least.

THIS makes more sense to me....

Blatche worked out for Avery Johnson in Houston last weekend.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong - but a good portion of an amnestied player's second contract goes to the team that amnestied him.

I know I read that the first time the amnesty clause was introduced their was a clause to prevent 'double dipping', I'm assuming it's the same this time around.

Well, normally when a good player is amnestied, he is picked up through the waiver claim bidding process. And, yes, the money from the bid, or second contract, is deducted from the cost of the original contract. For example, Billups was owed $14 million by the Knicks when he was amnestied. The Clippers bid $2 mill and succesfully picked him up. Billups did NOT get $16 million. The $2 million from the Clippers was deducted from what the Knicks owed. He got 12+2=14. There is no "double dipping".

Blatche's situation is a little different because he completely cleared waivers. Now, given that the second contract is deducted from the original, it would seem that there is never an incentive for negotiating more than the minimum. But that's not entirely true. Because in some cases, the original contract is only partially guranteed. So, when the player signs the second contract, he might try to get more than the minimum so that he can recover some of the money he lost by completely clearing waivers. That's not really "double dipping". It's getting back some of what you lost. For example, suppose you had a $10 mill contract that is 50% guaranteed. You're losing $5 mill by being amnestied and clearing waivers completely. So when you sign your second contract, if it's below $5 mill, that ain't gravy. It would be stupid to reward players for being amnestied, and especially when they completely clear waivers.

That's my understanding of things. Sorry if the explanation is a bit convoluted.

That's a good explanation. When I said gravy I was thinking that after waivers Washington is committed to paying all of it but it makes more sense that waivers is more about giving other teams a chance. I believe Washington is on the hook for the next 3 years and I doubt any team will give Andrey anything more than the min considering his past attitude issues. I would chance it.

Nets lineup:

PG: D. Williams/Watson/Taylor
SG: J. Johnson/M. Brooks/Bogans
SF: G. Wallace/Shengelia/Stackhouse
PF: Hump/Evans/Karaman
C: Lopez/Blatche/FA?

On paper a top 3 team in the east.

I'm not really either. Still think he ends up with the Heat unless they don't want him, then the Nets. At least with the Heat he has a better chance of starting AND winning a title.

I agree with the fact that with the Heat Blatche could start at the C

Do you think he has a better chance of winning a title with the Nets over the Heat?

The Heat would be ridiculous if Blatche actually got his head on straight with them, because he would fit their system beautifully in being a mobile big who is quick enough to trap pick and rolls and recover, as well as being able to finish around the basket.

The likelyhood of him ever growing up is small, but for a minimum deal, its definitely worth a shot because you can just cut him if he pulls some bullshit. And if he actually works out, then you have a quality big who is capable of putting up big numbers with his skill level.
