NBA Free Agency 2012: Former Wizard Andray Blatche Will Reportedly Sign 1-Year Deal With Brooklyn Nets

Former Washington Wizards forward Andray Blatche is ready to move on, heading to the Brooklyn Nets after agreeing in principal to a one-year contract, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo.

Blatche showed talent during his time in a Wizards uniform, but never seemed to put it all together. The knocks on Blatche include a complete lack of focus and a low basketball IQ, something the Nets are obviously hoping he'll improve on.

The 6'11 forward was a second-round pick by Washington in 2005, and had his best season in 2010-11 when he averaged 16.8 points per game. The Syracuse, N.Y. native has averaged double digits in points three times, including 2009-10, when he poured in just over 14 points per contest.

Despite his size, Blatche has never really become a solid defender and rebounder. The power forward only has a season-high of 8.2 rebounds, showing his lack of dominance in the paint.
