Report: Andray Blatche signs three-year deal in China

2 Comments

Andray Blatche signed to play in China this season, and a few NBA teams – the Heat, Nets and Grizzlies – were reportedly interested in signing him once he finished overseas.

They’ll have to wait longer.

A lot longer.

David Pick of Eurobasket.com:

This could end Blatche’s NBA career. He’ll be 31 when the contract expires, and teams might not rush to sign him past his prime.

But – after averaging 31 points, 15 rebounds, five assists and three steals per game this season – he should remain a star in the Chinese Basketball Association. Plus, that’s a nice salary.

If he’s happy with the lifestyle there, this seems like a good move for him all-around.
