Former National Basketball Association (NBA) player Andray Blatche has committed 100 percent to Gilas Pilipinas in its FIBA Asia championship campaign this year. The naturalized Filipino is expected to be in Manila near the end of the PBA Governors’ Cup to join the team’s practices ahead of the Olympic qualifier. “We expect him to be with us. I’ve spoken to Andray and he’s told me he’s committed and will be 100 percent with the team,” Gilas coach Tab Baldwin told Richard Dy in a report to sports website Spin. “I want to get him here virtually before we go to the (training) camp, or maybe a little bit before that. Hopefully, before the end of the third conference,” Baldwin added. ABS-CBN News

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
