Wizards Likely To Use Amnesty Clause On Andray Blatche, According To Report

Barring some late breaking trade, the Washington Wizards appear poised to use the amnesty clause on forward Andray Blatche. Michael Lee of The Washington Post cited league sources in a Monday afternoon report on the Wizards' thinking regarding Blatche.

The deadline for using the amnesty clause is Tuesday, July 17, giving the Wizards slightly less than 24 hours to find a trade partner.

Blatche has fallen out of favor with the team's brass as well as the fans. Using the amnesty clause would remove more than $23 million off the payroll over the next three seasons. Whether or not another team will take a flyer on him if Washington does go the amnesty route remains to be seen.
