Andray Blatche has been the target of trade speculation for much of the season, but according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post, the Wizards are probably not going to trade the often embattled power forward.
While two Western Conference executives said in late December that the Wizards were open to moving Blatche, the Wizards have informed others in recent weeks that they intend to keep him.
Blatche hasn't had the smoothest season, and the team may be starting to regret the big contract they gave to him recently, but they are deciding to hang onto him and see if they can develop his potential. Blatche is averaging 15.9 points and over eight rebounds per game in this, his sixth season with the team.
The Wizards are said to not be very aggressive in the trade market, but willing to listen to other offers for most of the players on their team outside of their young core.
