Blatche, who played for the Washington Wizards last season, has averaged 9.9 points in his career, including a career high of 16.8 in 2010. Blatche had fallen out of favor with the team since signing a three-year, $28-million extension in September 2010.

Blatche had a disappointing 2011-12 campaign – on and off the court – and was eventually sidelined for the final 21 games to work on his conditioning after his weight ballooned to at least 280 pounds. The Wizards went 10-11 without him.
