Report: Nets, Grizzlies interested in Andray Blatche

Andray Blatche, who has been playing in China after spending last season with the Brooklyn Nets, reportedly has interest from Brooklyn and the Memphis Grizzlies since Blatche’s Xinjiang Guanghui Flying Tigers are now eliminated from the Chinese Basketball Association playoffs.

From ESPN’s Mike Mazzeo and Marc Stein:

Brooklyn and Memphis are intriguing in the case of Blatche for different reasons. The Nets weren’t high on bringing back Blatche when his contract was up after last season. They’re in strange waters with Brook Lopez and even more strangely vying for an eighth spot in the Eastern Conference.


Memphis doesn’t necessarily need Blatche with their front court rotation. They recently signed JaMychal Green to a 10-day contract while relieving Tyrus Thomas. The skill set and experience of Blatche would be interesting for the Memphis bench. We’ll see how and where the big mans lands should he make his return to the NBA.

Miami showed their interest in Blatche as early as this season.
