Brooklyn Nets center Andray Blatche was a diamond in the rough for the Nets last season, who picked him up for much less than his production was worth. After receiving just the veteran's minimum from the Nets, Blatche produced an average of 10.3 points and 5.3 rebounds per game in just 19 minutes of action. His effeciency skyrocketed this season, bumping up from just 38% last season to 51.2% this season. Many thought that with this kind of production, it might be difficult for the Nets to keep Andray Blatche.
It looks like he's here to stay, at least for another year.
Peter Vecsey first reported that Andray Blatche has committed to the Brooklyn Nets with the following tweet.
This just in: Been informed Blatche cancelled meetings with other suitors. Meaning Andray has made commitment to Nets.

Looking back at his production again, a one-year $1.4 million deal looks very good. However, it depends on if Blatche can stay focused and committed.
