"Top teams in both the Eastern and Western conference playoff race have begun the recruiting and courting process (of Andray Blatche)," agent Andy Miller tells HoopsHype. The regular season in China finishes on February 1, so Blatche could become a free agent very quick should his team fail to make the playoffs. Xinjiang is currently No. 7 in the League, just one win ahead of No. 9 Dongguan. Only eight teams qualify for the postseason. HoopsHype

One player who might have been a possibility was former Detroit forward Josh Smith, who was released by the Pistons and signed with Houston this week. Miami could consider current free agents Jermaine O’Neal and Emeka Okafor if they still want to play, and Andrei Kirilenko might become available if he continues refusing to report to Philadelphia. Andray Blatche, 27, would be worth a look, but he currently is playing in China and will not be able to return to the NBA until March. Palm Beach Post

Part of the coach’s answer: “It’s a little bit different throwing the ball to Nene, Gortat, and Paul Pierce than it is throwing it to JaVale McGee, Andray Blatche, and those guys. So they’ve done a good job of getting a supporting cast that works with him.” Truth About It
