Free agent power forward Andray Blatche has agreed to a one-year contract with the Brooklyn Nets at the veteran minimum according to a report by Yahoo! Sports.

Their had been various reports that the two sides were working on a deal for the last several days.

Blatche was released by the Washington Wizards in July during the amnesty process.

ESPNNewYork.com's Mike Mazzeo reported over the weekend that Blatche would not receive a guaranteed contract as the Nets already have 13 players on the roster with guaranteed deals.

Behind Brook Lopez, the Nets have no other traditional center on their roster and are looking to bolster their frontcourt.

The Nets recently worked out Eddy Curry and Hilton Armstrong as possible depth additions but Armstrong signed a contract to play in Greece.

While Blatche is by no means a traditional center but could be a bargain for the Nets frontcourt at the veteran minimum.

Blatche, 26, avereaged career highs of 16.8 points and 8.3 rebounds per game for the Wizards in 2010-11. In seven NBA seasons he has averaged 9.9 points and 5.5 rebounds in 22.7 minutes.

He has shown signs of great potential but has also been known to disappear for long stretches during his career and has also had several off-court problems.

Blatche will likely be battling Mirza Teletovic for bench minutes at the power forward spot in Brooklyn.

Blatche has spent the summer working out with John Lucas in Houston.
