Report: Wizards with "renewed consideration" for amnesty on Andray Blatche

The Washington Wizards are mulling whether to amnesty forward Andray Blatche or hold out on possibly trading him and the $23 million that he's  over the next three years, according to tweets from Marc Stein of ESPN.com.

The Wizards can amnesty him anytime between July 11 and July 17. The team will look to trade him but if they can't, Stein reported, Blatche will either be cut through the amnesty clause or paid to stay home.

The prospect of trading Blatche, while daunting, doesn't figure to be impossible, especially for the Wizards, who, in June, managed to get the New Orleans Hornets  to take on Rashard Lewis as he entered the final year of his $118 million, six-year contract. Lewis had a $13.7 million buyout provision, which the Hornets took advantage of less than two weeks after acquiring him.

Blatche averaged 8.5 points and 5.8 rebounds in 24 minutes per game last season. Between injuries and clashes with the team, Blatche played in only 26 games in what was already a shortened lockout season.
