OBKS: Have you given any thought to the Andray Blatche… Billy King: Yeah, we’re in discussions about it. We’ve had contact with him and hopefully we’ll make a decision soon. OBKS: I’m sure your going to be busy the next few days with the trade deadline. Billy King: Yeah. The trade deadline is next Thursday so uh, we’ll work the phones. I doubt if we’ll do anything but we’re going to work the phones and if something makes sense we’ll do it. OurBKSocial

What is an issue for the Nets is frontcourt depth. Mirza Teletovic is out for the season with bilateral pulmonary embolus, or blood clots in his lungs, and Kevin Garnett has seen his minutes reduced as the season’s gone on. Garnett was down to 17.4 minutes per game in January and Brooklyn could use another player in its big man rotation. “Anybody he brings in,” guard Darius Morris said of general manager Billy King, “it’s because they feel who can help the team. So I’d be happy.” King spoke to the Nets’ website before Monday’s game and indicated that the team would not be making any trades before the All-Star Break. But in the few days before the trade deadline, Blatche could certainly take up one of Brooklyn’s potentially vacant roster spots. SheridanHoops

After averaging 31.1 points and 14.6 rebounds a game in his first season in China, Blatche is receiving interest from several playoff contenders including the Nets, according to a source. The Nets could have re-signed him following last season’s second-round playoff exit, but they opted against it at the time. Wall Street Journal

Sources told ESPN.com that the Nets are among the teams tracking Blatche, who just became a free agent after his team in China failed to reach the Chinese Basketball Association playoffs. The Nets have one open roster spot and, according to sources, are on a list of Blatche suitors which also includes the Memphis Grizzlies. It remains to be seen, however, whether the Miami Heat will rekindle its longstanding interest in Blatche, given the recent emergence of big man Hassan Whiteside with the Heat. ESPN.com
