She -- in Washington dot com. Our so our investigators that came up with a some -- up with this the forty ninth overall pick in the NBA draft. Since 1967. Every blacks has scored the second most points ever. That's the kind of time we have here. But we -- -- even deeper so we asked the man who called tonight's summer league game which in the -- and risky but can't go sit here but Andrea black just time here. In DC. Well I had great Blatche is seven year run with the Wizards comes to it and it's chicks said and in a mixed emotions -- -- like the guy he didn't always do the right thing but clearly he wasn't in the kind of shape that he needed to be still to finish out last season and the Wizards felt like. You know enough unfortunately is enough he never reached the level of expectation. That Ernie grunt so that group thought and he won't be blind to the Wizards anymore. I mean it's tough situation anytime you get to release sir you find yourself move from that first team. But it happens so hopefully and listening to his some of his words with Chris. -- Miller he's got a positive attitudes were trying to make some other things have performed someplace else but you -- it wasn't happening here. Obviously he was being affected by the fans and they've really got to a. That's -- -- had great skill set he's got the ability to play we saw flashes of of really greatness in his career why did beat themselves from getting into the kind of shape. That he needed to be needed to make a lucrative career. Only he can answer that but above what I will say about Hendry is the fact that here's a guy 611 handles the ball pretty well. I think he needs to develop a goal to play whether if he becomes the expert shot from the outside or if he becomes a player down low usually with that frame that size you're talking about somebody shooting the ball at the basket there. In the rim he handles it well enough to get himself in position to shoot the ball. But he just never got to a -- to move that really consider him a -- somebody picks them up. Oh absolutely I think somebody takes a shot at a you know I mean whatever the minimum Izzo picked him up and being give him a shot and it again mentally you have to be ready this game this league is played. From the neck up here -- there to be physically fit you -- to be in shape but boy if you're not mentally sharp -- -- -- So 23 million dollars to a great -- he'll get every penny but does this team changes physically and culturally and Andray Blatche will not be apart. Of that change check back to you. But the boy is still trying to or that point three mil that your way. So we're just continue their officers -- -- -- overall blacks and released Washington has now part ways with their four least affected players last season based on the plus minus -- Today he led the way for the Wizards with a plus ten rating but. He only played eleven games in the district. CSN Washington dot com.
