Andray Blatche is easily the most talented player left in the free agent pool. Obviously talent isn't the only thing that goes in to signing a player, especially for a team like the San Antonio Spurs who actively search for non-knuckleheads.
Despite Blatche being a "non-Spur" type of player, both parties continue to be brought up together, whether it's by ESPN's Marc Stein, Blatche himself or lesser-known NBA scribes. Is this a "where there's smoke there's fire" situation or an exercise in some August boredom in the NBA circles?
There's a couple of reasons why the Blatche rumors might have some legs. First, is the practical reason that the Spurs are thin on the front line. Second, the Spurs are right in the middle of figuring out their training camp roster and it's entirely possible they're thinking about offering him a make good contract similar to the one James Anderson just agreed to with Atlanta. Third, it's entirely possible the Spurs think Blatche is too good to pass up for cheap money. It's not normally the Spurs style, but stranger things have happened.
