This should as no surprise to anyone that follows the NBA in any capacity. Andray Blatche has been the butt of many jokes by fans and sports pundits alike for his maddening inconsistency and off-the-court antics.
Blatche is posting his lowest career averages across the board statistically and has lost his starting job to rookie Jan Vesely since Coach Wittman took over the team.
In the Wizards' most recent win over the Bobcats, Blatche played the lowest minutes on the team and was seen glaring at Wittman after being pulled during a substitution.
Ernie Grunfeld has invested a lot of time and money into the potential that Blatche has flashed throughout his career. However, at this point in the franchise’s rebuild, it is time to cut ties with him sooner rather than later.
Despite this being his seventh season in the league, he is only 25 years old and has the size and ability to become a very good player if a coach can harness his immaturity.
Blatche has been the main topic of trade rumors coming from the Wizards and his departure would be the least surprising move that could take place before the trade deadline.
Another option would be to wait and amnesty Blatche after the season if his trade value is deemed too low to make a move during the year.
