Aldridge: Andray Blatche declines $1.43 million option with Nets

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

David Aldridge of NBA.com is reporting that Andray Blatche has declined his $1.43 million player option to return to the Brooklyn Nets next season. This makes Blatche an Unrestricted Free Agent this summer.

Blatche's agent later confirmed the report...

Last year, Blatche had signed a one-year, $1.37 million contract with the Nets, which included the $1.43 million player option for the 2014-15 season. Blatche, however, received almost $7 million in amnesty payments from the Washington Wizards last season and is scheduled to receive a portion of $8.47 million in amnesty payments this season, from the Wizards, depending on how much he earns in salary from whichever team he signs with.

It's uncertain whether the Nets will offer him a contract. Blatche is hoping for a big payday and the Nets can off him up to four years and $25 million but they're also trying to get under the Luxury tax in 2015-16.
